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!

Mets fans are calling for the heater
For the first two games of the series, it seemed as if the Mets outsmarted themselves. They got intimidated by the Royals' reputation for hitting fastballs, so Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom - both of whom have outstanding fastballs that are difficult for anyone to hit - went away from their fastball. deGrom and Harvey were not beaten because the Royals attacked their fastballs. They were beaten because they hardly threw their best pitch in the first place. deGrom, who usually throws something like 65% fastballs, threw only about 35% heaters in his Game 2 loss. This is the World Series. You can't be too cute. You have to rely on what got you here. For the Mets, it's in large part their starters' fastballs. So now analysts and fans alike have been calling on Noah Syndergaard, Game 3's starter for the Mets, to do one thing early and often: PUMP THE HEATER ! It's better to go down swinging, being the team that we have been all season, rather than to limp out because we got outsmarted, right? I know Syndergaard doesn't ever look like he feels pressure, but tonight there's going to be lots of it. It's as simple as this: the Mets need Syndergaard to save their season. So, with that said, it's time for Terry Collins to advise his young starter to go in with the wheels already off. Syndergaard has one of the hardest and most brutalizing fastballs in baseball. Let him use it. Often. The Royals have attacked the Mets for the first two games of the series. Let's get them back in Game 3 and attack them with a crushing fastball and some good, old-fashioned HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE! Citi Field is ready. I'm ready. Are you? @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @DerekGumtow @Straightshooter @Kirooken @TravisManning
Here's the full MLB playoff schedule
It's playoff time! Who's excited? I know I am - and I bet my fellow baseball fans are too! @mchlyang @christianmordi @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl !! Let's take a look at the Wild Card and NLDS schedule. It all gets started this Tuesday at 8PM ET as Houston travels to the Bronx to face the Yankees. The Yankees could have a tough time with the AL Cy Young frontrunner and 20-game winner, but it should be an intense game one way or the other. Win or go home! In the NL Wild Card, the Cubs face the Pirates in Pittsburgh at 8PM ET on Wednesday. This game also features a likely Cy Young winner, as Jake Arrieta will look to continue his masterful second half and knock out the Cubs' division rivals. After those Wild Card games are settled, we enter into the Division Series. Each series is a 5-game set, with the team with home field advantage playing host in games 1, 2, and 5. Both sets in the National league follow the same schedule of games. New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers St. Louis Cardinals vs. [winner of Pittsburgh vs. Chicago] Game 1 - Friday [@ LA/St. Louis] Game 2 - Saturday [@ LA/St. Louis] Game 3 - Monday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago] Game 4 - Tuesday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago] Game 5 - Thursday [@ LA/St. Louis] There's lots of intrigue in the American League, too. Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays Kansas City Royals vs. [winner of New York vs. Houston] Game 1 - Thursday [@Toronto/KC] Game 2 - Friday [@Toronto/KC] Game 3 - Sunday [@Texas/New York or Houston] Game 4 - Monday [@Texas/New York or Houston] Game 5 - Wednesday [@Toronto/KC] Enjoy the playoffs everyone! Be on the lookout for more cards anticipating and making projections as the first games approach!
Series preview: Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Let's have a look at one of the American League Division Series matchups, this one between Texas and Toronto. Toronto Blue Jays Season record: 93-69 Home record: 53-28 Away record: 40-41 Key players: David Price (SP), Josh Donaldson (3B), Jose Bautista (RF) Key injuries: None Projected starters: Unannounced [likely Price, Marcus Stroman, Marco Estrada, R.A. Dickey, Price] Here's what you need to know: The Blue Jays have the best offensive lineup in the Major Leagues. Picking up Donaldson mid-season turned them into a fringe playoff team into World Series contenders. Ace David Price, another midseason acquisition, anchors a solid pitching staff. This team is beastly and will strike fear into the whole league. Texas Rangers Season record: 88-74 Home record: 43-38 Away record: 45-36 Key players: Prince Fielder (1B), Adrian Beltre (3B), Cole Hamels (SP) Key injuries: None Projected starters: Unannounced [likely Hamels, Yovani Gallardo, Colby Lewis, Derek Holland, Price] Here's what you need to know: Texas snuck into the playoffs out of the AL West, storming back and beating out the Astros and the Angels for the top spot in the division. It's a team with quite a bit of power coming from the bats of Fielder, Beltre, and Mike Napoli, but the pitching isn't going to blow anyone away. They're a playoff team, but not much more. My prediction This series should be a walk in the park for the Blue Jays, who are the pick for most to reach the World Series out of the American League. I don't see Texas getting in their way. I'm picking Toronto in 3, a clean sweep of the Rangers, who will be exhausted having fought so hard just to get into the playoffs in the first place. Texas ace Hamels cannot out-duel Price and Toronto will dominate in the other games. Does anyone disagree? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @jokes @DonnaMelton @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Shippudenguy21 @RosePark
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/14/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Mariners Fan (Seattle Mariners) We finally get one from the crowd! He was under it, he reached out, and made the play. The bow was a must. Good thing he brought his glove to the game! The Mariners crushed the Angels 10-1. 4. Jedd Gyorko (San Diego Padres) Jedd Gyorko spins and makes the play to make a 1-2-3 inning for James Shields! A strong outing from Shields and an explosive Padres offense leads them to victory over the Diamondbacks, 10-3. Shields also collects his 12th win of the season. 3. Christian Yelich (Miami Marlins) Yelich makes the catch and throws a cannon to second to get Juan Lagares out at second. The 2014 Gold Glover gets another 2014 Gold Glover out with his incredible arm. Too bad the Marlins faced the hottest team in the MLB right now; the Marlins lost 4-3 to the Mets. 2. Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals) The number one candidate for the NL MVP award saves the game with runners on first and second. The ball was going in fair territory but Harper reaches out, slides and makes the catch! Harper's catch leads Washington to victory as they top the Phillies 8-7 in extras. 1. Mikie Mahtook (Tampa Bay Rays) Mahtook jumps up and makes the catch, but it doesn't stop there. Mahtook comes down and throws one to second to get Gardner out and make it into a double play. This amazing play also extended Erasmo Ramirez's no-hitter through the seventh inning (He lost the no-hitter in the top of the eighth). The Yankees topped the Rays 4-1 with a three-run homer from Slade Heathcott. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

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 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!

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Learn the story of the team Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Learn the story of the team Buccaneers  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers is an American professional soccer team based in Tampa, Florida. The Buccaneers compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the National Football Conference (NFC) Southern Division. The club joined the NFL in 1976 as an expansion team, along with the Seattle Seahawks, and played its first season in the Western Conference of the American Football Conference (AFC). Before the 1977 season, Tampa Bay switched conferences and divisions with Seattle, becoming a member of the NFC Central Division. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Learn the story of the team Buccaneers  As a result of the league reorganization before the 2002 season, the Buccaneers joined three former NFC West teams to form NFC South. The Glazer family owns the club and plays its home games at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The Buccaneers have won two Super Bowls, along with the Baltimore Ravens, the only two NFL franchises unbeaten in many Super Bowl appearances. They were considered a permanent losing franchise for most of their first two decades due to suffering 26 consecutive losses in their first two seasons (including a winless inaugural season) and losing 14 straight seasons from 1983 to 1996. Despite these early struggles, Tampa Bay is the first post-merger expansion team to win a league title, win a playoff match, and host a conference tournament; Achievements were achieved in their fourth season in 1979. The team's image had improved by the time of their first championship in 2002, which is also the first franchise created after the merger, but they wouldn't win another playoff game until their second Super Bowl season in 2020. In conjunction with the lack of success outside of their Super Bowl victory, Hafez Buccaneers have their lowest win percentage in the NFL at .404. Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach bruce Aryan 2019 After Dirk Koetter ended, the Buccaneers named Bruce Aryan as the 12th head coach in franchise history on January 8, 2019. The Aryans retired from coaching for a year, having spent the 2018 season at the broadcast booth. Since the Arians were still under contract with the Arizona Cardinals through the end of the 2019 season, Tampa Bay agreed to give the Cardinals the sixth round in the 2019 NFL Draft of Arizona rights, as well as receive Arizona in the seventh round. same draft. On the same day, it was reported that the Bucs would also bring in Byron Leftwich, who had served under the Arians in Arizona, as offensive coordinator. The next day, the Buccaneers announced the appointment of former Jets coach Todd Bowles as their defensive coordinator. In the 2019 season, the Bucs finished with a score of 7-9. Jameis Winston set a franchise record with 5,109 yards, becoming the eighth player in NFL history to exceed 5,000 yards. He also had a franchise record with 33 touchdown passes, but by throwing 30 interceptions, he became the first midfielder in league history to have at least thirty of each. He will not be signed again by Tampa Bay after the season.

That was so disappointing
I have so many thoughts after the Mets' Game 1, 5-4, 14 inning loss to the Royals. The prevailing emotion is disappointment, but here are my piece-by-piece reactions. Matt Harvey: not bad, but not what the Mets were looking for. After allowing a lead-off inside-the-park home run (which I still think should've been an error, but no matter), Harvey settled in really nicely for a few innings. He was himself, mowing down hitters and changing speeds really nicely. But Ben Zobrist, a thorn in the Mets' side all night, came through big and Harvey exited after the sixth, having allowed 3 runs. The Mets need depth out of their starters if they're going to win the series, and Harvey's six innings just weren't enough. Jeurys Familia is human. Familia had a big 'welcome-to-the-show' moment last night. It's so easy to forget that this is his first season as a closer because of how good he's been, but that's the reality, and with inexperience comes mistakes. Last night, he made a big one. Two outs away from a Game 1 victory, Familia served up a game-tying home run to Alex Gordon. It was crushing for the Mets, who nearly stole Game 1 on the road. But it wasn't reasonable to expect Familia to go through the entire playoffs unscathed. He was going to slip at some point. The timing of this is tough, but I know that he will bounce back. The Royals are extremely good. Since they play in the American League, I hardly ever watched the Royals play this season. After last night, one thing is very clear: they are an outstanding baseball team. There is no hole in their lineup. 1-9, they put up good at bats and come up with big hits and walks. They are the best contact team in baseball and it showed early, as Harvey seemed uncomfortable pumping fastballs. It messed with him, no question about it. This is going to be an incredible series. If I learned anything last night, it's that these two teams are ready to put on a spectacle. For neutral fans, this is going to be a total treat. For Mets or Royals fans, this is going to be a terribly nerve-wracking couple of days. The MLB's office is going to be thrilled with the quality of the games. Last night was a really, really, really good baseball game. It had everything: baserunning, pitching, hitting, fielding, mistakes, drama, you name it. It was a tough loss for the Mets in Game 1, but it's only Game 1. They can bounce back with deGrom on the hill tonight. I have faith. Did you watch the game? What are your reactions? @mchlyang @christianmordi @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @DerekGumtow @Straightshooter @Kirooken
