Well, for this boring off-season that just started, I decided to a few top 10 lists from the last season. Today, it will be the Top 10 Webgems of 2008. In addition to those 10, there are another 10 "bonus clips" that for whatever reason could not be put into the list but were way too good to leave off. Enjoy.

 

10) Cantu's game saving dive:

 

 

9) Treanor starts a double play:

 

 

8) Uggla makes a leaping grab:

 

 

7) Danny throws from his knees:

 

 

6) Hammer dives and saves a couple runs:

Nice Job Rab, very impressive, but Amezaga from his knee deep in SS is the #1 play

The order on the list is extremely arguable. Hell, I might have left off some plays that should have been here. My initial list was nearly 50 plays long.

 

 

I believe u should instead tomorrow make the top 10 greatest home runs of the 2008 marlins season tbh

Predictions (in no particular order) Hope u dont mind me guessing Rab!

 

Ricky Nolasco Complete Game vs San Fran

Josh Johnson Complete Game vs Atlanta

Chris Volstad's 1st starts vs Dodgers

Andrew Miller vs Philly in June - 7 innings 1 run

Scott Olsen vs Milwaukee - 8.2 scoreless innings

Rick VandenHurk vs Atlanta - 5 hitless innings

 

Volstad and Nolasco had a few other starts worthy of consideration however I do not know whether u are focusing on just starts on bullpen also, such as situations where trouble is averted.

I will try and make the predictions for top pitching performances

 

1. Nolasco's Complete game

2. Volstad's gem against the Dodgers in 2nd career start

3. JJ's complete game

4. Team's combined 1 hitter

5. Scott Olsen July 4th :mischief

 

that's all i got thus far

If its pitching performances in general, we need to include Volstad getting out of bases loaded jams all season long.

 

And for the bullpen, Arthur Rhodes first appearance, which i believe was against Chase Utley and Ryan Howard respectively, striking them both out i believe
