1/6/19: A Gift From The Shift (9/13/2013)
Whatever your stance on the current MLB trend of excessive defensive shifting, it's here to stay (unless some committee votes to ban it...don't hold your breath).
These shifts may taketh away, but it also giveth at times if the batter exercises a bit of strategy.
Yankees star Robinson Cano, who faces shifts often, takes the old adage "hit 'em where they ain't" to previously-unexplored new levels with one of the most unusual doubles you'll ever see.
Notes: Cano would be stranded when Alfonso Soriano struck out to end the inning, but he doubled two other times, scoring once and driving home two other runs as part of a four-hit day.
Red Sox involved include P John Lackey, pursuing SS Stephen Drew and 3B Will Middlebrooks taking the throw at 2B. Despite Cano's big day, Boston went on to win 8-4, with Lackey triumphing over Hiroki Kuroda.
12/24/18: Gardy Spoils The Party (8/20/2016)
Historical boxscores will show that on August 20, 2016, Yankees veteran RP Tyler Clippard threw one scoreless inning on seven pitches.
What they will not show you is the effort required to preserve that scoreless inning.
Yankees LF Brett Gardner, who'd wind up winning a Gold Glove for 2016, channeled his inner Brian Giles to keep young Angels 1B C.J. Cron from circling the bases. Degree of difficulty: 10/10.
Notes: Despite being hitless in five AB, Gardner provided a nice early birthday present for himself; he turned 33 four days after this catch. The inherited runner on 1B, Jefry Marte, did not score, and New York cruised to a 5-1 win over the Angels behind Luis Cessa.
LA's Albert Pujols homered in the 9th to break the shutout.
1/1/19: A-OUCHI! (6/5/2014)
Anybody who says baseball isn't a dangerous game obviously never advanced past backyard Whiffle ball. How many games can the ball actually put you in the hospital?
(Well, I suppose if you stood too close to a DeAndre Jordan free throw ricochet, problems could arise...but let's leave that aside for now.)
Yadier Molina, who always seems to be in the middle of crazy stuff, wants simply to toss Michael Wacha's 1-1 pitch back to him. But damn if Nori Aoki's brain weren't so frikkin' big...
Notes: Aoki, who batted leadoff for KC that night, remained in the game and grounded out, although he hit an RBI double later on, helping KC to a 3-2 win behind Yordano Ventura.
