    Top defensive plays you've seen

    Two of the best defensive plays of 2013. Both made my jaw drop:

    That Prado play was really good. BP's turn here is the best play I've seen this year. One of the best I've ever seen. Edit: Asdrubal was extremely good too.

    Favorite fielder of all time Rey Ordonez. Here is a relay throw to nail a runner at home.....from his knees.

    This one is not bad either.

    Ken Caminiti, the strength and accuracy of the throw from the seat of his pants always makes me remember this one.

    I can't find video of Freel's catch of a Pujols flyball from 2006, but this one is pretty great too:

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    All time favorite defensive play: Bo Jackson throws out Harold Reynolds

    All time favorite defensive play by a Red (seconded by Larkin): Eric Davis throws out Bobby Bonilla in the 1990 playoffs

    All time best defensive play I've seen in person: Dave Parker making a throw out at home in the mid-1980s, then leading off the next inning with a home run. Sorry no video or details. I was a teenager at the time.
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. -- Terrance Mann (Field of Dreams)
