Did anyone else see the video showing the calls from both team's TV and radio feeds? Pretty cool. I also feel the Indians' announcer was more excited about it than Farmer.

Farmer didn't make the call.

The Indian's radio guy (last clip on highlight) had a pretty epic call of the play. I usually like that guy a lot though. He is a big homer like Hawk but he is very into the game and gets extra pissed when the Indian's mess up.

Say what you want about DJ, but I think he did an excellent job describing that play.

I agree. I think that overall Farmer & D.J. get too much flack. While nothing compares to the Rooney / Farmer duo, I think Farmer and D.J. are pleasant to listen to. I'm someone who catches 120 + games a year on radio.

Great stuff in that link.

I've always like this guys commentary.

Tom Hamilton. He's very good. He also does basketball on the Big 10 Network.

I haven't been on this site for a few days, but did anyone mention that he likely made a skate save on the ball rather than being hit by it? Instinctive reaction, makes the play even more remarkable if I'm right.

I think in the 1/10th of a second it took the ball to get back at him, it just so happened to hit his foot.

To me it looked like he stuck his foot out in order to stop it.

I think he just reacted to a ball being hit back at him, I really think you're underestimating how fast those things move, it just so happened that his foot wound up in the same spot as that ball.

Buehrle did say in the post game press conference that he believes he did stick his foot out to stop it and that it's a habit he has that may get him hurt one day.

Actually, I read an article in the Sun-Times about the play yesterday where Buehrle himself said that he has a tendency to throw out any body part to knock a ball down that's coming his way. He said he realizes he may get hurt someday because of that.

I guess I wasn't clear enough, I'm not saying he stood there like a statue, but still, I don't think you can plan on how a ball will deflect off you, especially if you're a pitcher. Maybe he got his foot out there, but it was mostly dumb luck the ball happened to hit him there perfectly.

No, that was as deft a kick save as you'd see from any hockey goalie.

Not luck. Not smart, maybe, but not lucky.
