MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/15/15)

Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day!

5. Kris Bryant (Chicago Cubs)

Now we all know who Kris Bryant is and we all know he is the most likely player to win NL Rookie of the Year this season. We also know that he is an infielder. But you can put him in any position and you can expect him to do great things, which is exactly what he did in right field. Thanks to Bryant's amazing catch, the Cubs beat the Pirates 2-1 in their second match of their double header last night.

4. Manny Machado (Baltimore Orioles)

Manny Machado probably has one of the best range at third base in the league and we saw that last night with the little chopper hit by Dustin Pedroia. Even though Pedroia may not be the fastest guy on the team, you can't ignore the Red Sox second baseman's speed. Machado made that barehand play look so easy and smooth. The Orioles also beat division rival, Red Sox, 6-5.

3. Mike Moustakas (Kansas City Royals)

Mike "The Moose" Moustakas knew the importance of last night's game. He went all out, dived, slid, and landed in the rubber track. Oh, and he caught that ball while doing all that. He has finally stepped up for the Royals and has been a leader both offensively and defensively. Moustakas and the Royals blanked the Indians 2-0.

2. Stephen Piscotty (St. Louis Cardinals)

Stephen Piscotty, the left fielder for the St. Louis Cardinals, made this tremendous catch that was going over his shoulder. The ball was already going by him but he was not going to give up. He dove and made this tremendous catch to put his name in the daily Top 5 Plays of the Day. The Cardinals beat the Brewers 3-1.

1. Carlos Martinez (St. Louis Cardinals)

Yes, we've seen something similar with Manny Machado up there, but just in case you guys haven't noticed, Carlos Martinez is a pitcher. The Cardinals' starting pitcher not only pitched eight strong innings, giving up one run, but he also made that incredible play. He was off-balance but he kept his focus and threw a perfect strike to Colten Wong who came into cover first. So, number one goes to Martinez and once again, the Cards beat the Brewers 3-1.
Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

@jeff4122 Yeah dude...I really want to see him become the next Pedro Martinez. I miss watching Pedro pitch....
What a play by Martinez. You hardly ever see a pitcher give himself up like that. That's an athlete, not just a pitcher. He gets my vote.
@mchlyang definitely a beast, loved watching him pitch as well
@ButterflyBlu Yeah same here. He is def one of the best third basemen in the league right now! But yes, you have to give it to Martinez on this one!
I really enjoy watching Manny Machado play. He's always so damn fast and smooth. But that play by Martinez... just fantastic.

MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/13/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Jason Heyward (St. Louis Cardinals) The Cardinals' nightmare has finally come to an end. Cards' defense was exceptional today with Yadier Molina throwing out NL basestealing leader Billy Hamilton. But the MVP goes to Heyward for snagging Ivan De Jesus Jr.'s home run especially when the game was still in doubt. Heyward learned his lesson on Saturday when Adam Duvall's two run homer bounced off the top of the wall. The Cardinals beat the Reds 9-2. 4. Khris Davis (Milwaukee Brewers) If only the Brewers have won, this guy would have been the Man of the Match. Khris Davis robbed a homer from Francisco Cervelli and kept his team going. He not only robbed that homer, he blasted a two-run homer the next inning to keep the Brewers alive. Despite an amazing performance both defensively and offensivley by Davis, the Brewers lose to the Pirates 7-6 in the 11th inning. 3. Brian Bogusevic (Philadelphia Phillies) The Phillies' right fielder, Brian Bogusevic, and his fully extended diving catch robbed Dexter Fowler's potential double. You could see starting pitcher, Aaron Harang, show his appreciation with an air-five! With Bogusevic's amazing play, the Chicago Cubs lost to the Phillies (the worst team in the MLB) 7-4. 2. Lonnie Chisenhall (Cleveland Indians) The Indians' Right Fielder made this impressive play in deep right field. It was an all out diving effort all the way to the warning track and stole a possible double, or even a triple away from Rajai Davis. Despite Justin Verlander starting for the Tigers' mound, Detroit lost to the Tribe 7-2. 1. Brandon Barnes (Colorado Rockies) And the number one play from last night's games come from Brandon Barnes of the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies' left fielder not only made a phenomenal play, he made that play into a double play. This was the game-winner for the Rockies as they topped the Seattle Mariners 3-2. Barnes said he felt a bit dizzy after he slammed his head into the ground but he kept his focus to sling the ball to first and throw out Ketel Marte.

I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
Cubs eliminate Cardinals and move on to NLCS
It's a sad day in St. Louis. No, seriously. Cashiers at grocery stores work without smiles. The city is in a haze - you can almost taste it. This means a lot to St. Louisians. The Cardinals - owners of baseball's best record for virtually the entire season - were eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the red-hot Chicago Cubs. What happened? The best team won, that's what happened. The truth is that the Cardinals were a gritty team all year, but without Yadier Molina and Carlos Martinez (their only true ace), who both got injured at the very end of the regular season, they were a team without real punch. The Cubs, on the other hand, look like they might be the best team in baseball. They dominated the Cards in four games, smacking an MLB record 9 home runs in a span of just two playoff games. This team hits the absolute lights out. With rookie phenoms Kyle Schwarber and Kris Bryant, not only are the Cubs crushing it now; they look like they're built for the future, too. Oh, yeah: winning in four games also means they get to get extra rest for the best pitcher in baseball. Also on the Cubs. With the Mets and Dodgers not playing until Thursday, Arrieta will get at least a few more days rest before being ready to go in Game 1 of the NLDS, regardless of who he faces. That's trouble for the opponent. I know I picked the Cubs to win the series before it started, but I didn't expect them to completely dominate like they did. They look scary good. I wouldn't want to face the Cubs right now. No matter who I am. I'm not sure they can be beaten - maybe this is finally their year? Or is it too soon to say? @christianmordi @mchlyang @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @jokes @DonnaMelton @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Shippudenguy21 @RosePark Can the Cubs really get it done?
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/29/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Anthony Gose (Detroit Tigers) This one went deep and looked like trouble for the Detroit Tigers. But Gose was already at the fence to leap up and snag that home run from Moreland. He timed his jump perfectly and made the play even better with the nonchalant, sidearm throw after he made the catch. The Tigers fell to the Rangers 7-6. 4. Lorenzo Cain (Kansas City Royals) Another great play from a center fielder! The ball stayed high up in the air for some time and looked as if it was just going over the center field wall. Lorenzo Cain however wasn't going to give up and was not afraid of the fence. He leaped up and caught the ball to rob Thompson's home run. The Royals however fell to the White Sox 4-2. 3. Drew Stubbs (Texas Rangers) It's the top of the ninth with the Rangers leading by 1. Runners are on second and third and a big hit could turn the game around. And that is exactly what Ian Kinsler did as he hit one deep into the outfield. But Stubbs wasn't going to let this one get by. He ran full speed and caught the ball to end the game and lead the Rangers to victory. You could see he went all out as he leaped up the fence and almost went over it. Thanks to an amazing play by Stubbs, the Rangers beat the Tigers 7-6. 2. Trayce Thompson (Chicago White Sox) We all know Trayce Thompson is Superman by day, and baseball player by night. Another fantastic play by the Chicago White Sox outfielder. He reached, leaped, and flew for a couple of seconds to make that catch and end the inning. What a play! The White Sox beat the Royals with Thompson's amazing play, 4-2. 1. Martin Prado (Miami Marlins) I'm just going to say it one more time by Martin Prado is one of the best third basemen in the league. He is also one of the toughest players as well. He made it to the list once again with this amazing over-the-fence play when he chased the ball all the way into foul territory, leaped over the fence, and caught it. Derek Jeter might have left baseball, but we definitely have a lot of players to fill his shoes. The Marlins fell to the Rays 4-2. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

Love It Or Hate It: Live Sporting Events?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about SELFIE STICKS. It was an EXTREMELY tight vote, but out of the 60 who gave your opinion, 33 of you said that they're actually kind of useful! Soooo... SELFIE STICKS WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about attending live sports games? Spectator sports have been around since the days of Ancient Greece, but the ones we know and love today came into being in the mid 19th century! The number of Americans that attend at least one live sporting event annually is easily in the tens of millions. However, the amount of them that find said sporting event COMPLETELY BORING is still widely unknown. How do YOU feel about spectator sports? Are they tons of fun or brutally boring? Debate, debate, debate! @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx
