    What a catch by Reed Johnson!

    Holy crap! Reed Johnson just robbed Fielder of a grand slam by leaping up the right field wall to grab the ball as it drops behind the fence!! Incredible catch


    Hit it hard, every yard

    Second best one I can remember in Miller Park....Hunter robbing Bonds in the All Star Game was just a tick better.


    Excellent catch. Prince even tipped his helmet to him.

    You can actually use the line from Major League.....he hit it too high.

    I love that he just got beaned. That's what a pitcher needs to do.

    Had Reed not had to come in for Bradley a few innings ago pretty sure that Bradley doesn't make that play. Ironic how those things work out

    It had nothing to do with it. He just happens to be one of the most erratic pitchers in all of baseball.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    That's what went through my head too. Reed's the only Cubs outfielder that could make that play. Bradley probably wouldn't have gotten to the wall by the time the ball landed.

    So erratic he just happened to hit Johnson right between the shoulder blades?

    Johnson did turn into it to make sure that's where he was hit, but yeah, it was right at that level.

    Still, who hits a guy for a great defensive play? Especially when he doesn't showboat about it, just gathers his feet and gets it back to the infield.

    yes

    don't know if anyone noticed, but Fielder tipped his cap to Johnson as he headed into the dugout- this shot wasn't called.

    I don't really think it was intentional, as Julio was all over the place before then. The timing was more than odd, and the Brewer fans giving Julio a standing ovation was weird.
