MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/25/15)

Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day!

5. Rafael Ynoa (Colorado Rockies)

So the Rockies know a lot about the Dodgers since they're in the same division, which is why they decided to do a major shift facing Andre Ethier. But when Ethier hit that ball, we thought it was going to go beyond the infield. Not Ynoa though. He went to his right to make an outstanding stop and also throw one on his knees to get the out. The Dodgers fell to the Rockies 7-4.

4. Michael Taylor (Washington Nationals)

This one was hit towards center and we all thought it was going to be a routine popup play for Michael Taylor. However, there was a lot of wind in Washington today as we go into fall and the wind killed the ball to come down a lot quicker than expected. Taylor however did not lose focus on the ball and sprinted down to make a fabulous diving catch. The Nats however lost to the Phillies 8-2.

3. Martin Prado (Miami Marlins)

We all know Prado is a great third baseman. Well, he proved it once again with this fantastic double play where he showed off his skills in the hot corner. He perfectly timed his dive, stopped the ball, threw one to Gordon on his knees, and Gordon completed the 5-4-3 double play. After a couple of runs back and forth, the Marlins beat the Braves 12-11.

2. Trayce Thompson (Chicago White Sox)

Some people think baseball players are just huge, slow guys who crush a ball once in awhile. For those haters out there, Trayce Thompson showed some athleticism and grace with the second best play of the night. The ball was hit hard to right but Thompson wasn't going to let it go over his head. He leaped like a ballerina, extended his glove to make the catch. His throw was a bit off, but at least someone was backing up and he saved a few runs from being scored. The White Sox beat the Yankees 5-2.

1. Mookie Betts (Boston Red Sox)

We see a lot of walk-off hits. We don't hear too often about a game-ending play that robbed a possible home run. Well, that is exactly what Mookie Betts did last night when the Red Sox faced the Orioles at Fenway Park. The game could have become more interesting when the 2013 AL home run leader, Chris Davis came up to bat in the ninth. He hit one way back to right field and we all thought it was going to be his 44th home run of the season. But not Mookie Betts who wanted to end the game as quickly as possible. Betts went over the home run fence and robbed Davis of a home run and ended the game a bit early to give his teammates some extra time to rest up. The Red Sox beat the Orioles 7-0.
Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

That marlins play was crazy. I live right across the street from the marlins stadium and I heard when the crowd went crazy, it must have been during that play. I'm not a Marlins fan, but I do give credit where credit is due. And that definitely deserves credit. WOW!!!
@mchlyang ah yeah that is true
@Starbell808 Ahh...well they were all great plays. But the Mookie Betts play ended the game by snagging a home run!!!!
i do like 4, 3 2 and 1. in that order lol
@karencorchado Yes I agree. I love seeing Prado play. And even though they haven't been great the past few years, I can really see them trying to build the team around Giancarlo Stanton, whom I also love seeing play. Also, it's so cool you live across the Marlins Park!!!! Say hi to Dee Gordon for me haha

MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/10/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Eugenio Suarez (Cincinnati Reds) That was a pretty deep slide into second base but Suarez made that play look so easy! Brandon Phillips also showed some solid defense last night. The Reds' keystone combination were just on a roll last night defensively. The Reds crushed the Cardinals 11-0. 4. Wilmer Flores (New York Mets) What a dive from Flores! That catch helped the Mets' starting pitcher Bartolo Colon extend his consecutive scoreless innings. Unfortunately, the streak stopped at 31 but the Mets beat the Braves 7-2 and Colon collected his 14th win of the season. 3. Martin Maldonado (Milwaukee Brewers) I don't know what's up with the Pirates when they meet the Brewers and what was Cervelli doing? He isn't even that fast! Anyways, great throw by Maldonado and the Brewers beat the Pirates 6-4. The Pirates have now lost seven consecutive games against the Brewers. 2. Yangervis Solarte (San Diego Padres) I was a bit surprised when I heard the Yankees traded Solarte to the Padres. He's been doing pretty well with the Padres considering the fact he made his Major League debut last year. But yes...I love these barehand catches by third basemen. Despite Solarte's barehand and cannon to first, the Padres fell to the Rockies 4-3. 1. Charlie Blackmon (Colorado Rockies) The number one play of the day today and another one from the Rockies - Padres matchup. Charlie Blackmon simply snagged that homer from Brett Wallace who came in to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth. What a clutch performance by Blackmon and this catch I feel like was the deciding factor in the Rockies' victory over the Padres! Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

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!

7 Essential Life Lessons from David Ortiz
Big Papi announced that the 2016 MLB season would be his last season as a professional baseball player (If this is news to you check out the details on this card I wrote a few days ago). So, in order to celebrate his amazing career and his last upcoming career, here are some essential life lessons we can all take away from David Ortiz! 1. Make a good first impression. People know him best for his time with the Red Sox, but he made his Major League debut with the Minnesota Twins in 1997. Just look at that smile! Who wouldn't want to play with that dude? 2. Be a trustworthy friend. That's Big Papi and Pedro Martinez. Ortiz was released by the Twins by the end of the 2002 season and then he had dinner with his good friend, Pedro. Then a two months later, January 22nd, 2003, Ortiz signed a contract with the Red Sox. Coincidence? I don't know but one thing's for sure. Ortiz had Pedro's back and Pedro had Ortiz's back. 3. Always dress to impress. That casual hat belongs to Ortiz. And yes. That's his silhouette on the cap. Ortiz definitely knows what's up! 4. Always give good hugs. No wonder why his nickname is Big Papi. This guy gives the greatest hugs. I wish I could get a hug from Ortiz and I'm not even a Red Sox fan! 5. Have the power to predict the future. He knew that was going to be a ball before the pitch was even delivered. How crazy is that! 6. Know how to bring a whole team, a whole city together. The video above is David Ortiz giving a speech at Fenway Park, after the Boston Marathon bombing. He sure knows how to rally the crowd. During the speech, he says, "This is our fxxking city and nobody gonna dictate our freedom. Stay strong and thank you." 7. Know how to hit home runs. In the end, Big Papi is a baseball player. And he has a great personality and all, but above all, he knows how to hit home runs and win ball games. That's why we are all going to miss him when he retires after the 2016 season. Adieu Big Papi! @jeff4122 @christianmordi @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @DerekGumtow @Straightshooter @Kirooken @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @ChristopherKenn @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @addri @GinnaL13 @VeronicaArtino @TomasVasquez @GingerMJones @starli
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.
Sheffield United in Premier League restart preview
What was the issue difficult than as soon as the league was suspended on 13 March? Supposed certainties for relegation, Chris Wilders Sheffield United team were the most heartening gloss of the season until the pause. Seventh in the table gone the knowledge that winning their game in hand would raise them to fifth. European qualification is a conclusive and glorious possibility and they as ably as have a FA Cup quarter-massive at stop adjoining Arsenal. Whom they have already beaten at Bramall Lane in the league this season. Sheffield United have a amassed armoury of players who are plentiful to an extent not seen at their previous clubs and their associated completion within Wilders inventive system is reflected in the fact that they have the second meanest defence in the league, an wonderful execution for a team contesting their first season after sponsorship. They have sustained their hermetic form throughout the toss taking into account suggestion to. When their unaccompanied defeats in their last 13 matches to the guide the lockdown monster to Liverpool and Manchester City. What on the subject of now? The squad is harm-general pardon and Wilder may have welcomed the rapid mid-season crack insofar as it enabled him to flaming a team that seldom changes (four of the mitigation five have played all go along in the middle of of the season, though John Egan has missed and no-one else one). There were more harmonious news at the weekend as the club reached a arbitration in principle as soon as Manchester United for the goalkeeper Dean Henderson to stay future than 30 June. What needs to be curtains to have a gymnastic fade away to the season? Although the Blades tightness is due to much anew a sociable goalkeeper, keeping Henderson is important. United could profit your hands re taking into account more brusqueness going on front. They are totally not a negative team no side can be sensibly called that bearing in mind their center-backs regularly suit every single one single one along the wings but they have mustered fewer shots than anyone else in the league, appropriately there is a oppressive onus to present a appreciative get together between on the few chances they forge. That is not just all along to their forwards, whose contributions to the team upon the go conscious opinion much upon peak of scoring. But astern canny midfielder Robert Fleck their joint-leading scorer in the league at the by now five goals, an increased strike rate from Lys Mousset (adjacent-door upon five goals), Oli McBurnie (four) or David McGoldrick (tantalisingly stuffy to above zero) would be a boost. Have the players and staff behaved during lockdown? Yes. Any unsung/community heroes Sheffield United? In swell to joining his teammates in contributing to the Players Together fundraising intention, Enda Stevens, formerly of Shamrock Rovers, donated to a fund set taking place in his almost flare country for League of Ireland players left in financial rough conditions by the lockdown. Stokes James McClean and Burnleys Kevin Long, both of whom in addition to started their careers in the League of Ireland, did likewise. Key artist in the control-in? Ollie Norwood. Sheffield United mammal the Premier Leagues best example of the high flier of a perfectly calibrated and populated system, it is hard to identify one performer who is more important than the others. Henderson obviously performs a unique role but ample of others along considering have valuable specialities. Norwood is a vital cog in the heart of midfield, an ever-produce a result whose realization to knit hobby-court encounter together explains why he has completed more passes than any auxiliary artist in the side this season even even if moreover winning more tackles than any of his midfield teammates.

When you can't decide on your favorite player...
Giancarlo Stanton and Ichiro Suzuki are both great baseball players. But one thing is for sure! They both play very different types of baseball. Stanton is known for crushing baseballs out of the park... And Ichiro is known for making contact with the ball and his speed! But one thing's for certain. These two are incredible baseball players. So what do you do when you can't decide on your favorite player? THIS. But to be honest...I'm not sure if I'm digging the look.

MLB Top 5 Plays of the Day (10/03/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. DJ Lemahieu (Colorado Rockies) What a diving stop by DJ Lemaihieu! He not only stopped the ball, he threw it on his knees to get the out at first. The Rockies however fell to the Giants 3-2. Nice job DJ! 4. Alexi Amarista (San Diego Padres) That was a great diving catch by the little ninja, Alexi Amarista, as he makes an incredible diving catch. That play robbed Gonzalez's potential double to end the inning. The Padres fell to the Dodgers however, 2-1. 3. Kelby Tomlinson (San Francisco Giants) It was a popup to shallow right and it seemed like it was going to be a lucky base hit. And Tomlinson had a hard time finding the ball and that was understandable as he was going for an overhead catch. He however found the ball while running, and caught the ball to get the out. The Giants beat the Rockies 3-2. 2. George Springer (Houston Astros) The ball was hit deep right, but Springer was there to make the diving catch. If that ball went by, it was easily extra bases. Thus, it was simply an enormous play by Springer to keep the Astros in lead. The Astros beat the Diamondbacks 6-2. 1. Carlos Perez & Erick Aybar (Los Angeles Angels) The Rangers needed one more win to clinch the division title, but the Angels were not going to give up that easily, especially because the Angels are one game behind the Astros for that last Wild Card spot. They were down 10-6 but showed once again that the game ain't over till it's over. The Angels scored five runs in the top of the ninth to turn the game around, 11-10. And, with that throw by Perez, Aybar tagged Andrus and got him out to end the game to add another win to their season as they inch closer to that Wild Card spot.

Red Sox slugger, David Ortiz will retire after the 2016 season
First, Mariano Rivera. Then Derek Jeter. Now, David Ortiz. These are the players that I loved watching growing up. They were the players that made the Yankees - Red Sox rivalry so great. Even though I supported the Yankees, I loved seeing Big Papi play. And Mo and the Captain have retired but it seemed like Ortiz had at least another two, three years left inside him. But Big Papi announced that he is going to retire after the 2016 season. Ortiz is a nine time all-star, six-time Silver Slugger Award winner, and finished last season with a .273 batting average, 37 home runs, and 108 RBIs. Big Papi just turned 40 yesterday, so he will be amongst one of the eleven position players in Red Sox history to play after they turned 40. He has hit 503 career home runs and out of those 503, he hit 445 during his 13 seasons with the Red Sox. He also has the most home runs as a designated hitter (447) which is well ahead of Frank Thomas (269). Well it's not simply his stats that define Big Papi. It is his presence and symbolism for the Red Sox organization and he always puts team before himself. He once said during an interview: "Winning another World Series [is the goal]. I'll take a World Series anytime on top of 500 home runs any day. That's my goal. That's my goal for next year. That was my goal for this year, but it didn't work out that way. I'll be on it next year." That is Big Papi for you right there. It will be really sad to see him go after the season is over. What do my baseball fans think? Are you guys sad that David Ortiz will retire after the 2016 season? @jeff4122 @christianmordi @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @DerekGumtow @Straightshooter @Kirooken @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @ChristopherKenn @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @addri @GinnaL13 @VeronicaArtino @TomasVasquez
