In round one of our inaugural GIF tournament, Buck Showalter's emotional display when Adam Jones homered off of Mariano Rivera at Yankee Stadium topped Nate McLouth endearingly mouthing "my bad" after a bad throw. Buck faces a tougher challenge in round two, that being perhaps the finest play in baseball made this entire year. Yes, that's right, it's That Manny Play.
That Manny Play got a high enough win percentage when first posted for a first-round bye, so this is its first time appearing in the tournament. It originally posted on July 17th and beat out the awesome All-Star Wet Willy. Is it awesome enough to top the Buck GIF? It appears that every time Buck appears in a GIF, he's the winner. But can he even top this display of defensive wizardry? It's up to you.
Voting will last until midnight tonight. Choose wisely.
