The .GIF thread

Postby silverZ » Fri Apr 13, 2012 9:29 am

I figured we could use a highlight thread to share the entertaining GIFs we come across. I'll start it off with the best throw to first I've ever seen courtesy of Matt Garza. To be fair he was at 119 pitches when this happened. :-b

Here's Jack Wilson trying to make a throw to first. I'm impressed he even got the the ball. You can't get much deeper in the hole than that. that's what she said

Here's Hunter showing some heart after face planting into the wall.

I hope the Padres played the rest of that game under protest because there's no way that call should have stood. Just horrendously bad umpiring.

What was this all about? :-b

Edit: Explanation via Larry Stone:
In the eighth, the A’s mounted their biggest rally off Noesi on a two-out single by Cliff Pennington, followed by a ground-rule double from Weeks. But Noesi stepped up one last time, getting Coco Crisp to pop out to shortstop on the first pitch he saw.

Montero and Noesi had a playful exchange after that out that accentuated their rapport from five years together in the Yankee organization. Asked what Montero said, Noesi laughed and said, “I can’t tell you.”

But he did say the two agreed before the game to have fun.

“We said, ’Let’s enjoy this. Talk to me, and I’ll talk to you back,’ " Noesi said.

That tepid out call by the first base umpire was hilarious. I could hear him thinking "that's nice, I'm going to be on a viral video now because the douche at home plate is such a @(#&* idiot" :-b
