That's it. All forthcoming Web Gems will be locked in a battle for second place, as on the first full day of the baseball season, Mark Buehrle has gone and sealed up the top spot.â†µ
With one out and none on in the top of the fifth, Buehrle threw a fastball that Indians catcher Lou Marson lined back to the mound. The ball caromed off into foul territory by first base, but Buehrle - never one to give up - tracked it down, picked it up with his glove, and, facing the wrong way, flipped it backwards between his legs to Paul Konerko in time to get the runner.
Generally, a top defensive play will require one of talent, flash, or luck. Buehrle's had all three. Not even Hawk Harrelson could spoil this masterpiece.â†µ
