Yoenis Cespedes, Jose Guillen And The Staying Power Of Baseball

When I woke up this morning to clips of Yoenis Cespedes’s “Oh my God, how did he do that?!” throw, the first thing I thought about was Jose Guillen in Colorado in the summer of 1998.

I should probably clarify that this isn’t a pissing contest between which throw was better, or more impressive, or anything like that. Cespedes’ throw conjuring up Guillen just further hit home again the wonderful childish staying power that baseball possesses. Guillen’s throw came in an otherwise nondescript weeknight game, played by two teams that would each finish the season well below .500. There was no YouTube, or even really high speed internet to ravage looking for replays of the throw the next day. Instead, anyone who missed Guillen’s throw live likely spent the next channel surfing, hoping to catch some scraps of it on SportsCenter or maybe the local news. Yet despite all of this, watching the above video, ¬†every detail about the throw is exactly as I remembered it.

What a sport.

    Ever see ex-pitcher Rick Ankiel’s throws at Colorado to nail guys at third?

    More astounding for accuracy, perhaps, based on Ankiel’s history of Steve Blass disease.

    Outfield defense is such a lost art. Cespedes and Guillen forced themselves into having to make their incredible throws by butchering the original plays. Thus, Yasiel Puig is destined to have a bunch of these before it’s over.
