Shortstops are by far the most entertaining players in baseball. The reflexes. The timing. The leaping throws. And these days, there’s no better example of that than Atlanta’s Andrelton Simmons.
Check out this play he made Monday night against the Marlins.
Baseball people were impressed.
I've never seen a player change directions as quickly as Simmons. Three of my favorite plays by him started with him going opposite of ball.

Andrelton Simmons just made the greatest baseball play I will ever see.

Andrelton Simmons has made a deal with the devil. No other explanation.

Hyperboles aside, Simmons is making this sort of yearly thing. He pulled off this insane behind-the-back transfer last season.
