Received 976 votes in Round 1, and 745 votes in Round 2.

it’ll be great if it can eventually come to Zito vs. Lincecum in a “Giants pitchers are weird”-off.

Barry Zito, well, that gif is the distilled essence of six seasons and 4,358 batters faced.

He initially raises his glove in hope that the pitch will come down in the strike zone, and then looks up and locates the ball before slowly retreating as if to say “Shit, never mind”

JADEVEON CLOWNEY.

Clowney

Received 1,137 votes in Round 1, and 1,710 votes in Round 2.

the Clowney hit is just so insane. He starts on the defensive line, just jumps through the hole, and basically kills a guy. The helmet flies off the screen. OFF THE SCREEN! He then palms the ball one-handed. All this happened one play after Michigan was gifted a fourth-down conversion by the refs.

It looks for a second that Clowney has a 3rd arm when he picks up the ball.

Clowney hit the dude so hard that his arm became another of Clowney’s.

I've seen it a thousand times, but Clowney still makes me scared. For myself. I am too scared not to vote for him.
