We've moved on to round two of the GIF tournament, where Manny Machado and Buck Showalter face off. Who will own it?

Manny does a lot of awesome stuff, but is hs awesome enough to beat Buck?

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.
