Joey Gathright is amazing (You Tube link)

Last season, this video of him jumping a car came out.  I never thought he’d use that skill in a game.

I wonder if not jumping a car will become a condition in his next contract.

Bah.

It's not like he did a Matrix-like contortion or something.

Now, that is what Alex Rodriguez should have done, not a pansy-slap attempt to knock the ball out of the glove.

It already was when he was with the Rays.

Now if only the Royals would strategically place cars in the outfield, maybe his defense might improve.

Just ask Aaron Hill about his jumping ability. Last summer in KC he pulled back home runs in consecutive games off him.

After the second one, Hill really gave him the gears (in a good natured way). I hated to see him lose the dingers but damn those were pretty plays to watch.

Best Regards

That's pretty good. One of my friends back in high school used to like to do that to unsuspecting people in the halls between classes. It was always pretty funny.

Big deal. It's not like the car is moving or anything.....
