Jonah Keri pointed this out on Twitter a few minutes ago. I dare say I haven’t seen analysis this good in all of my days. Really, we just need to stop now and let the season wind down, because all that can be said has been said. Including a bit about CC Sabathia having “gained so much weight, every time he goes to the beach, Greenpeace tries to drag his a– back to the water.”
Video: Tony Kemp makes a sensational catch to halt two-out rally by Red Sox
After scoring two quick runs against Astros starter Dallas Keuchel in Game 3 of the ALCS on Tuesday evening, the Red Sox offense threatened again in the third. J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts drew back-to-back two-out walks, bringing up Steve Pearce, who hits lefties quite well. With a 2-2 count, Pearce lifted an 81 MPH slider towards the Crawford Boxes in right field, a mere 315 feet away from home plate. Left fielder Tony Kemp, listed at 5’6″, ranged back, timed his jump and crashed into the scoreboard while holding onto the ball. The catch prevented two runs from scoring which would have extended the Astros’ deficit. Instead, the score remained 2-1.
