Johnny Mac


Recommended Posts

Did anyone see the amazing play John McDonald (SS for the Jays) made in their game against the Indians?

First off, he slides across just to keep the ball in the infield then while flat on the ground uses his legs to push himself up just enough to make a solid throw to first and get the guy.

Me describing it makes it seem like a usual play, when you see the play you will agree that it may be the POTY.

The play itself: pretty impressive

The fact that commentator said, "John McDonald puttin' on the Ritz with the defense here in the ninth?" Decidedly more impressive.

Beltrans may have been more important but Macs was a better all around play.

Exactly. On pure aesthetics AND difficulty, McDonald's got Beltran beat easily. The throw's 10 times more impressive than the sliding grab in itself.

^Haha on the quote.

Imo, POTY no doubt about it.

Sorry Beltran was better it came at a more important time

So because Johnny Mac made that while his team was being blown out it is less impressive? If anything I think it's more impressive since his team had all but lost that game and there was nothing to play for.

Pffft get over it Tank. Beltran's play couldn't hold a candle to Mac's.

I hate how all of the outfield catches are thought of as bigger plays then ones like this. I realize the athleticism necessary to make the outfield grabs but the infield plays are much more difficult. ESPN and other networks have the lists of best plays and the great grabs in the outfield are always number one. This play beats all of those hand down. Not only do you have to make the catch but you gotta make the throw with only fractions of a second to spare. I might just have the mind of an infielder but I rather see an Ozzie smith highlight reel over and an outfielders.
