WATCH: Matt Joyce makes catch that reminds fans of Willie Mays

  • David Whitlock

Tampa Bay Rays OF Matt Joyce channels Willie Mays as he hauls in a catch of a Chris Denorfia drive to get a key out in a close game in the bottom of the 9th.  Watch, courtesy of

With catches like that, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ought to think about trying him out to complement Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, I’d bet Joyce would be a solid 3rd down possession receiver.  I note he got two feet down in bounds before impacting the wall.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
