The Nats win in 12, beating Houston 3-2 on three RBI from Danny Espinosa. They now have baseball’s best record and are four games up on Atlanta. The O’s win in 14, beating Seattle on two HR from Matt Wieters. They’ve now won 12 straight extra-inning games and are tied for the AL Wild Card. This is shaping up to be an okay baseball season. [

This one has all the ingredients of a great catch:
— bad route to the ball
— full-on extended leap
— a total snow cone grab
— the rockiest of landings
— and a Todd Coffee fist pump
Not sure what more you can ask for than that. Thank you, Roger Bernadina. I have no idea why they call you the Shark, but it works for me.
… that I know of, but he did get “jacked” this winter.
And good for Bernadina. He was having a decent 2010 through August (.760 OPS) until his numbers fell off of a cliff (.458 OPS after August). He says it was because he wasn’t in very good shape.
I don’t know about that, because he looked pretty fit to me. He certainly looks more fit now, and he figures to get plenty of time in left field, so I’m all for his newfound [colloquialism for arms].
I’m also for following
the SEO Rapper’s advice, hence the headline and url. Google juicing aside (Google juice? Get it?), the Shark has like 18-inch biceps. Mine are only six.
More power to him, we hope.
