DMV: Adam Jones’ ‘A-Mays-ing’ Catch

Adam Jones not only hit a second-deck homer against Seattle, the team that traded him away, but he also made this terrific, over-the-shoulder, basket catch. Better than Roger Bernadina’s amazing grab? I think so. [BSR, BLS]

  1. as a 100% impartial nats fan and avowed baltimore hater, i feel that nix’s catch yesterday was better than jones’

  2. Jones’s was sick and better than Nix’s, but Bernadina’s beats them both.

    The thing about Nix’s, though, is that he had no business catching that ball.

    Bernadina’s was essentially both of those put together: laying out and over-the-shoulder. He also gets style points for the snow cone.

  3. to me, nix wins when you add in game situation. i don’t buy his quotes that he planned it that way but the tying and losing runs would’ve scored if he didn’t make that play. bases were empty for jones

  4. of course you think the jones catch was better than Bernadina’s… but it was not. Do you have a clip of when the ball bounced off Jones’ glove for a HR in the Nats series?
