They flashed up a board with homers by 1B, and only Pujols is ahead of ALR.  Then they launched into a rif on ALR, mistakenly saying he was released and only brought back because we did not sign Fielder. One of them said that, looking at that HR board, there's no question he was the best $ value for performance this year out of all the 1Bs.

90% of the players on the "Most Intimidating Players" list are African-American.  I just find that strange and wonder what leads to that statistical anomaly.  Cultural?

From a certain angle, Uggla looks like Porkey Pig.

Dang.  Shark's game ending catch in Houston was only #16.

#15 was a triple play that was not bery impresive.  It was hit right at third so the 3B just stepped on the bag and threw it around the horn.  What annoyed me most about the play was the announcer making the call who referred to it as "an inning ending triple play."  WTF.  There are 1, 2, 3! outs in an inning so, duh, every triple play is an inning ender.  No crap sherlock.

Maybe Werth's walkoff in game 4?

EDIT: nevermind, it's just defensive plays.

That #3 catch wasn't even close to Bernadina's spectacular dive last year.  Or was that two years past?    :shrug:

Desmond's diving stop to win Game 5 would've been a contender.

Bryce Harper's debut the ninth best game in 2012 in all MLB. It was quite a night..

Then #7 the Braves' huge comeback. That one was tough to stomach.. Some good moments though like Espinosa's game-tying home run off Kimbrel.

Finally, #2... I need a drink. :cheers:

Morse's phantom grand slam was the #1 most unusual play of 2012.
