• Pirates Outfielder Travis Snider Just Made "One Of The Best Catches You'll Ever See"

    Travis Snider switched from No. 45 to No. 23 when he was traded from the Toronto Blue Jays to the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this season. In a meaningless game between Pittsburgh and the Mets on a day during which the attention has focused more on Keith Hernandez's facial hair than actual baseball, Pirates outfielder Travis Snider made a bid for defensive play of the year in robbing Mike Baxter of a towering homer at Citi Field. But with one out, Mike Baxter was robbed of a home run on a spectacular catch by Travis Snider, who scaled the right-field fence, hung there, and then caught the ball in his outstretched glove. But the Pittsburgh Pirates were not cooperating early in the game. Turns out it was an appropriate change too, because the Buccos right fielder looked a lot more like the young "Air"-era Michael Jordan than the more-grounded post-comeback version when he made one of the catches of the year during Thursday's game with the New York Mets. Dickey, pitching Thursday afternoon in the Mets’ final home game of the season, is trying to become the first Met to reach 20 wins in a season since Frank Viola did it in 1990.
