POLL: Most Think Benintendi And Betts Catches Equal
Early voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll shows that a majority of readers (56%) think last night's Andrew Benintendi catch and last year's Mookie Betts catch were "equally good". As the chart shows, among those choosing one catch or the other, Benintendi's wins by an almost two-to-one margin (29% to 15%). Clearly, both catches were spectacular displays of athleticism—with similar leaping and balance skills coming into play as well. Hopefully we can look forward to many more years of great defensive play from the "Three Killer B's OF" of Benintendi, Betts and Jackie Bradley, Jr. You can still vote in this poll HERE.
