→ Jonah Keri on Jackie Bradley Jr.

But the highlight of Bradley’s day came in the bottom of the third. With two outs and a man on second, Robinson Cano smashed a drive to deep left. Bradley, who came up through the minors as a center fielder and had little experience playing the slices that come with being a corner outfielder, raced back to the track, and in a near dead run, made a leaning, lunging catch to save a run, ending the inning, and squelching what might’ve become a game-changing Yankees rally.

Jonah Keri has it right, the catch was awesome to watch. I am trying to keep my expectations in check for Bradley, but, I admit, I am getting caught up in the excitement. That said, they are going to send him down for 20 days to get a whole extra year on his contract, right? Right?
