  1. Why people post such obviously fake stuff is beyond me.

  2. Meh — a bunch of line outs to short. And why wasn't he wearing a batting helmet?

    (-;þ Woww!

  3. Crazily fake.

  4. Even if that were real, I would still be more impressed by Jose Guillen's throw.

  5. This is fake like others have said... Unless he is so skilled to hit the net at SS in the same place every time...

  6. @5 : He's got another where he hits about 5 or 6 skeet shooting disks in flght
    without a miss.

  7. @6...so you're saying the guy is good at making fake videos then...

  8. @7: Yes

  9. It is a pretty well made fake video though, to be fair.

  10. @9
    Yes. I enjoyed it. Very entertaining.

  11. I'm at work, so YouTube is blocked...is this a video of Derek Lowe?

  12. @11: It's a video of Derek Lowe pitching a CG shutout. Obviously fake.

  13. @ 11
    Funniest post in a long time!

  14. The Original Jimbo Says:

    Yeah, I don't get the appeal of such obviously fake stuff. I guess people who've never played baseball will believe it. Just like that silly video of Lebron James sinking full court shots.

  15. @9
    Basically what I thought. It was really well done for how fake it is. Which is really really fake.

  16. Betcha if Jimmie Reese were still alive, he could do this video and it would be real:

  17. Still really like the fake Longoria catch.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMujgAAyH-I

    Still visually stimulating.

  18. @18: Agreed. Good one.

  19. What do you all think about Reyes leaving the game after the hit in his first at bat?

  20. The Original Jimbo Says:

    How about Pujols at .299 and 99 rbi's with a potential one game playoff if the Braves can win their current extra inning game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. 21 Wow,that would be a break for him and the team.

  22. The Yankees didn't bring in Rivera in the 9th with a 1 run lead either.

  23. not fake, but pretty old

  24. The Original Jimbo Says:

    I just knew the Braves couldn't win this one.

    No Bonus game for Pujols.

  25. Brutal finish for the Braves.

  26. Pujols streak has been "ruined" by 1 99 run season and now 1 99 RBI season.He's a great player,would have done it easily if he hhadn't missed a few games.
