    I really wish we had a better angle on Jackie for that Holt catch. These guys are having fun like 2013 right now.

    More Vazquez:
    [​IMG]

    He sees the runner start to go and adjusts his stance mid-delivery to be ready to make the throw to third.

    Perfect throw. Very impressive.

    Is it me, or does the thrown out runner giving a tip of the cap to CV? That is a beautiful play, I'm starting to spend more and more time watching the catchers position - although I did miss last nights game.

    After being called out, did the runner tip his hat to Vazquez?

    EDIT: great minds RR.....

    Perfect pitch to throw down to 3rd base, too

    I showed this to one of my students who is a native Spanish speaker. He said Vazquez is not saying "Bam, Muchaco." He's saying "Vamos, Muchacho," which means "c'mon dude!"

    I don't speak spanish, but portuguese is close enough. "Vamos, Muchacho" has one syllable too many.

    You're right about the syllable. My student was insistent that "vamos" was what he was saying, but "bam" actually makes more sense to me.

    Within the past few days, I recall that someone posted a brief step-by-step description for capturing brief clips of video action from MLB.tv and turning the clips into animated GIFs .... not in this thread, but somewhere on the site. Could someone with a better memory (or more l33t s34rch sk1llz) point me to that post?

    Thanks in advance.

    It WAS this thread, page 6 by pants party.


    1) find the highlight on MLB's website
    2) in Chrome, press ctrl+shift+i and go to "network"
    3) find the resource whose "type" is video/mp4
    4) go to imgur.com and at the top click upload images and select "Video to GIF" and paste the URL from step 3
    5) select what you want, it's limited to a five-second clip
    6) ???
    7) profit

    There's also this "video" tutorial which shows you where to click. I do a few extra steps by trimming via Quicktime and making the gif in Photoshop. I have yet to profit from this.

    Edit: also worth noting, when uploading from Imgur. Depending on what/how you uploaded, you may be given the direct link ending ".gifv" which is NOT an image format I believe this board recognizes. Simply removing the "v" at the end does the trick though.

    I know we've seen this kinda play a million times from him, but I see a play like this and get a little teary that someday (even when one of our young studs in manning 2B down the line) we'll look back on how fun it was to have Pedey out there.

    Vaz' shift to receive the throw is really incredible to my eye. Wow.

    Holt's excellent throw last night:
    [​IMG]
    4 observations:
    1. Holt receives the ball pretty high and his throwing hand is down, which may not be what you want, but you can't argue with the result
    2. The throw is money, Castro's out by ~15 feet
    3. Hanigan pick on that is super impressive, it bounces (max) 2 feet in front of him
    4. Hanigan receives and immediately puts his leg in position to stop/disrupt the slide - Castro either didn't think there'd be a play or just knew he was toast

    edit: thanks DDB for the correction!

    Especially amazing that Vaz did all that from the dugout!

    Seriously, though, it was really well executed all around.

    Believe me, he is saying "Vamos, coño!", which I am not going to translate word for word, but is equivalent to saying something like: "Shit, yeah!"
    It is one of the most common expressions amongst Latin players.

    I think you may be on to something here. "Bam, muchacho" doesn't make any sense.

    Yup, that's the first version that actually makes lip-reading sense.

    Xander with the "unnecessary because Butler is slower than Brady but damn if it didn't look cool jump-throw"

    [​IMG]

    I think I remember from some discussions about Jeter that it's actually more efficient to stop and plant in order to get more on the throw to first... but the jump-throw still looks so cool.

    Yeah, the accuracy is most impressive there. Eephus for a strike.

    You've got time for Eephus accuracy when you know Billy Butler is running. X is the 2nd coming of calm.

    I wish there was a better angle to see if he got a good jump, but the end result was cool either way

    Statcast seems to think it was a decent jump.

    His first step took 0.0 seconds? Wow.

    I think on that one I'd like to see Young's jump.

    No only that... the fastest Billy Hamilton has hit in the outfield was a little over 21 mph. So, both crazy jump AND top speed. And an effcient route. That's a good outfielder :)

    To get a 0.0 jump, Betts needed to have anticipated the ball based on the swing. Awesome that his outfield instincts are developing so well for a converted infielder.

    Bradley had a negative first step on one of his plays last season.

    Pitch type and location, swing, hitters tendency. Quite a few factors. Infielders need to do this too so some of it at least would be translatable.

    Leon picks a ball that Porcello bounces and manages to get the runner stealing second - good work at second by Xander as well

    When's the last time the Sox had defenders capable of playing a good CF at both corner spots in addition to CF itself?
