For being this far into the bracket, this last matchup wasn’t close at all. Sorry Will Smith, don’t take it personal. At least you have another play that has a chance of winning!

Cody Bellinger and his amazing home-run saving grab on Fernando Tatis Jr. ran away with the voting. On TBLA it received 90 percent of the vote, where over on Twitter it took home 90 percent as well. It’s the first time both polls have been exactly the same!

Here’s an updated look at the bracket:


Mookie Betts with an unbelievable throw

Unlike Mookie’s many postseason heroics, this is a play that actually took place during the regular season.

In the first week of the season, Betts fielded a blooper in right field. He then launched the ball to Corey Seager covering third base, nabbing Ketel Marte. The ball never even hit the ground.

Mookie’s amazing catch in Game 7

Mookie Betts is very good at baseball. It’s evident considering he’s battling himself today. This play gives us one of his many incredible catches from 2020. However, none were bigger than this one. In Game 7 of the NLCS, Betts robbed Freddie Freeman of a home run. It would have put Atlanta up 4-2, and who knows where the game could have gone from there. Instead, it remained a one-run game and the Dodgers came back to win the series.
