The play-by-play guy for Toronto said that Tadahito's play was spectacular. And just like all Canadians, he somehow related to hockey by saying that it was similar to the days of Bobby Orr back at the Boston Garden.

there is a famous replay of bobby orr scoring a game winning goal in o.t for the bruins, it may have been a stanley cup game.. he was falling to the ice, the same way tadahito was diving to the ground. yeah those nutty canucks love their hockey.

Can you imagine Berman making that call? "Molina hits one to Iguchi, Oh NOOOOoooooooooooo, he's OUT!!!!!!" :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

Gooch was incredible today. His last defensive play was something worth the admission price of today's game but let's not forget another outstanding play.

Anyone remember the play or two before where he ran toward center, lept and snagged a ball on the fly? That was equally incredible.

I am seriously thinking about my next jersey being an Iguchi.

Today's game D all around was something I really appreciated big time. It smacked me in the face how good the White Sox can be on defense.

I hung stars on three plays today, two by Gooch, and one by Crede. There was a lot of leather being thrown today. Iguchi may be the best second baseman the Sox have had since the last one who entered the HOF.

Opening night a few years ago, that fire hydrant made one of the best defensive plays by a second baseman I'd seen up until today.

Is Steve Sax in the HOF?

Not sure who're talking about, Durham? Graffanino? Harris? Alomar? Jimenez?

I believe it would be Durham.

I sure enjoyed the defense today. Besides Iguchi's gem, Crede had a couple of nice plays. One play that was routine but played a part in the SOX win was Buehrle starting the double play. A lot of times I see pitchers throw that one in center field.

Durham was a good offensive player, but his defense was routinely offensive.

I do remember that fly to rightfield that he caught. Durham was good for that type of play but then he'd boot the routine grounder or screw up in some other way.

Ya and naturally this is the first time I left a game early in years. and naturally I left when Jenks came in for the save. As I got to the car I heard the call on the radio. :angry:

Yet another example of why leaving a game early is never a good idea.:D:

Which is exactly why I have never left a game early, even when losing big, or sitting through huge rain delays, if you leave, you always miss something exciting.

That over-the-head catch against the Angels on Opening Day 2000. Great catch, but Iguchi has become a much better second baseman than Durham ever was.

I left early (top of the 9th) on Friday and missed a very exciting 2-run bomb by Troy Glaus.

Of that there is absolutely no doubt.

Last night on BBTN (I know, I know), I wanted to see where they listed Iguchi's play on their Web Gems segment. The host(it was Karl R) said it was the best of the day, and possibly the best they might see all year, "and it's only April". Buster Olney was quick to say, "there's a lot of baseball to be played, and he's not working with Jeter and Rodriguez". ????? WHY does that matter??

That was during a cup game and the photo is one of hockey's all time best. The play by Iguchi was one of the most incredible I have ever seen.I didn't see sport center last night but I hope it was the #1 web gem.

It was number 2, really numero uno. Number one was Jackie Robinson. Yesterday was the 59th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's debut and it was Jackie Robinson Day all around MLB. They made Robinson's debut the number one play.

I liked Ray Ray a lot, he was a good player, but Gooch is a lot better 2nd baseman Ray was.

They made Robinson's debut the number one play.I saw that, it was a respectable thing. I really can't argue with that call. I think this will be the best play of the year.

"The play Iguchi made in the ninth has got to be play of the year," Buehrle said.

Personally, I couldn't believe it as it happened. I was sick when he actually tossed the ball, and my eyes were searching for it to fly past Pauly. I had to watch the replay to truly appreciate it. It was an incredibly athletic play. What great body control.
GO SOX!!!

Not to mention, look at the circumstances, he doesn't make the play runners are on 1st and 2nd possibly 3rd and Lyle Overbay gets a shot to bat.

I was actually watching the BlueJays broadcast on MLB.Tv and really enjoyed their tv crew. Their color guy was very informative. 4 Stars to them and 5 to Gooch.

Yeah, I was also watching the BlueJays broadcast, and the announcers were good. I think the color man is Pat Tabler, who was a very clutch DH for the Jays back in their championship year.

GO SOX!!!

This morning on the score Hawk called it the best play he has EVER seen a second baseman make.

I only caught a few innings of the game on MLBTV, but that was enough time to catch at least two gems from the Toronto broadcast crew:

On AJ Burnett facing PK after giving up the home run: "...I think (after PK's homer) he learned not to throw a little spinning cement-truck curve ball to Paul Konerko..."

On Buehrle striking out Troy Glaus on a 3-2 changeup: "...that was just un-neighborly."

Good stuff, eh...

It is the East Coast Sports Network, remember. Funny how they never bring up A-Fraud losing a routine chopper in the lights at Angel Stadium or killing the rally with a DP in the Div. Series, yet they always bring up the A.J. strikeout whenever the Sox are brought up...just wondering.
