I Needed a Breather, So I’m Watching Albert Almora, Jr. Make Amazing Catches

Chicago Cubs

I’ve been driving myself crazy the last few hours with this will-they-vote-will-they-vote-yes-will-it-sink-the-season-why-won’t-the-owners-just-up-the-ante-slightly-wait-what-about-COVID stuff, so I needed an exhale.

I needed a random baseball memory to be like, oh yeah, that’s why I love this sport. Awesome things happen that are extremely fun to watch. And this is the first thing that popped into my head: absurd Albert Almora Jr. catches.

I know it hasn’t been the best couple years for Almora, whose bat is in need of massive improvement if he’s even going to be a useful bench player going forward. I also know that, by the metrics, the glove took a huge step backward last year. Fine. We’ll talk about that stuff when it’s time.

For today, I just wanted to watch a highlight reel of awesome Almora catches, and then add some other catches because I like them. Enjoy:
