Via @KTLincoln. Won Week 47 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 420 votes. Received 856 votes in Round 1.

The last moment of Kinsler touching the bag is icing on the cake.

I voted Kinsler because he fell down.

I voted for Kinsler solely based on he shouldn’t have as much momentum as he does based on how he hits the groud, and yet…and yet…it’s as if he willed himself to overshoot third base. Magnificent.

I’m a sucker for any GIF that breaks the 4th wall

- Valued Internet subscriber beenplumb

The best part of Chiarelli Is the general necklessness of his turn. If he had a neck brace on, he couldn’t have been more immobilized. It’s a full-body fourth-wall-breaker, and that is true beauty.
