Our third of the SB Nation awards posts is the Best Defensive play. If you missed them, the poll for the 'most regrettable Blue Jays moment' is here and the poll for the 'funniest Blue Jays moment' is here.
I've spent an enjoyable morning watching clips of great defensive plays. Trying to pick out the top few is an impossible task. Hope you enjoy looking at the clips as much as I did.
Our first is Casey Janssen making a catch with his hat:
No, I'm kidding...but that was pretty great.
The real picks:
1. Anthony Gose making a catch against the right field wall.
2.Ryan Goins makes barehanded catch to get the last out of Marcus Stroman's shutout.
3. Ryan Goins goes deep into the hole to make a play. Let's face it, I could fill the page with Goins plays.
4. Jose Bautista throws out Billy Butler at first base. He would throw out another runner at first 2 days later.
5. Jose doubles up Nori Aoki.
6. Dalton Pompey runs a mile to make an amazing catch.
7. Brett Lawrie jump throw.
8. Brett Lawrie makes a diving stop and great throw from right field.
9. Colby Rasmus running catch.
10. Jose Reyes goes to his right.
11. Diving play and throw from knees from Munenori Kawasaki.
12. Anthony Gose running catch
You know, for a team whose defense wasn't very good, there are no end to the great plays, but let's stop there. 12 is too many, but I like them all.
