I suspect they do it for iPhone mobile users who can't use flash.

I expected it to be a comedy of errors, but it was actually well-played defensively. Caught the ball with a bit of forward momentum, made a good, accurate throw. Damn that guy is fast.

Takes less effort to host gifs. Plus it works around some of the highlight rebroadcast rules.

With this guy last year, following years where I got to see Chapman and Votto play before they broke out in the bigs, Bats baseball has been a huge perk of living in Louisville.

So he's going to try and make a career out of bunting?

Being that it was the Cardinals, the play goes down as a sac fly.

Had it been the Mets, Duda would've dropped the ball and Murphy would have booted it halfway to the right-field foul pole.

Being it was the Cardinals, I'm surprised they didn't call infield fly...

Don't make me throw empty airplane bottles at you.

I had 8 steals in a game once...  in little league.

As a braves fan, I feel the need to point out that the umpires missed a good chance to use the infield fly rule .

An  INFIELD FLY is a fair fly ball (not including a line drive nor an attempted bunt) which can be caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, when first and second, or first, second and third bases are occupied, before two are out.

No one was on second.

I thought No One played center field.

And in other news, the Phillies suckage from last season continues. The only bright spot being Ben Revere's fielding...

As The Singing Bush said, nobody was on second so it couldn't have been an infield fly. And even if there was, they ball is not dead once an infield fly is called so you can still tag up on an infield fly. The infield fly rule prevents the fielding team from intentionally letting the ball hit the ground and then doubling up the runners.

No... Jon Jay was on his heels and even moved backwards. Billy is fast... but Jon Jay is awful.

Glad to see that a call that was properly made still has so many people butthurt 3 years later.

Why didn't anyone play right field?

Came to post this, glad it was already here; that boy fast. I've been anticipating his arrival since he was hitting inside-the-park HR's in under 14 seconds. He could catch a Japanese bullet train leaving the station with an armful of luggage.
