Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

April 8: Manny being Manny again

It might've been just one of the many fine defensive plays that third baseman Manny Machado (pictured May 1, 2015, against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg, Fla.) made in 2015, but it was the best. Machado ranged to his right, backhanded Rays infielder Logan Forsythe’s grounder while sliding by the third-base line, and then rocketed a throw across the diamond to nab Forsythe. Again, it was one play, but it spoke volumes that Machado was back from another knee surgery and better than ever as he won his second Gold Glove.
