A one-handed grab. Saved the beer. Gave the ball to a kid. Flawless.

How cool is this guy?

Every baseball fan dreams of catching a foul ball but no one will ever do it as flawlessly as this guy.

Early in Tuesday night’s Indians-Tigers game, Francisco Lindor sliced a liner into the rightfield corner—and that’s when our hero seized his moment.

You can’t execute a foul ball situation better than that. An effortless one-handed catch that would make Odell Beckham jealous, while saving the beer and then handing the ball to a kid. That’s the way you draw it up. Just look at the reactions from the fans around him, especially the long-haired guy three rows back. They know they just witnessed greatness.

The only thing I disapprove of is drinking a dark beer on a hot summer day.

Saquon Barkley and Barry Sanders are eerily similar

How good is Saquon Barkley? Even though he’s 25 pounds heavier than Barry Sanders was, he still has the exact same running style. For Sanders’s 51st birthday on Tuesday, Barkley posted a video on Instagram with a bunch of side-by-side clips of the two running backs doing the same moves. The comparison is wild.

I know Barkley isn’t anywhere near Sanders’s level right now, but can’t Giants fans just have this one?
