Via Crawfish Boxes, our Astros blog. Won Week 42 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 608 votes.

You certainly have a better shot of catching a foul ball in a cup if said cup has some beer in it to cushion said ball. But he reaches out with one arm to place his beer in the exact right spot. That is a nameless macrobrew, and it's also the best beer anyone has ever had.

(15) TONY CINGRANI.

Cingranisnarl_medium

Via cincinnati.com. Special nomination. Has not previously appeared in THIS WEEK IN GIFs.

I had to call an audible at the last minute just to make sure Mr. Cingrani got through the door. I'm sorry you have to go up against a 2-seed, sir, and a strong one at that.

You're a rookie, right? You don't have a nickname yet? OK, you're on a pitching rubber, and you look like ... oh shit. RUBBER JOHNNY. Your nickname is Rubber Johnny now. Don't breathe like that. It'll make you feel really strange.
