Defensive wizard Andrelton Simmons continued his tradition of spell-binding play last night when he deftly changed directions to field a scorching line drive. I think I threw my back out just watching his acrobatic stretching.
Perhaps the best indicator of this play’s brilliance is its ability to make fans in an Atlanta-based stadium stand and applaud.

Considering the recent dust-ups regarding baseball’s unwritten rules, I’m half-surprised the Miami Marlins didn’t throw a fit because Andrelton made the force out with his glove. Surely that goes against some ancient and undocumented code.
