You'll want to party after watching these NL Gold Glove plays

You'll want to party after these NL Gold Glove plays

If you've already seen 2014's AL Gold Glove winners, you probably think you couldn't possibly be more excited, right?


Because when you finish watching these defensive highlights for the National League's best defenders, you're going to want to go space jumping while eating one of those EXTREME tubes of yogurt. 

Don't believe me? Just check out these GIF-tastic highlights and find out for yourself. 

P: Zack Greinke

Just imagine for a second that you're a Major League pitcher. Not only have you pushed your body to the point where you can throw a 90-mph fastball, but now you've got to be ready to catch a laser-guided line drive, too.

Fortunately Greinke is prepared for all of that:


C: Yadier Molina

Thousands of years from now, aliens will visit Earth and see shrines devoted to Molina's seven Gold Glove Awards. 


But while Molina is a good defender, he may be an even better brother. I have trouble remembering my sister's birthday while the best defensive catcher in baseball remember's his brother's preferred snack


1B: Adrian Gonzalez

Gonzalez has soft hands. No, not like that


Not like that either. 


Here we go. This is obviously what I was looking for: 


2B: DJ LeMahieu

LeMahieu really likes to flip the ball


So even when he doesn't have a double play partner to team up with, he'll just flip it to himself:


3B: Nolan Arenado

Two big league seasons, two Gold Gloves. Not too shabby. Not too shabby, at all. 


SS: Andrelton Simmons

While the Large Hadron Collider may have discovered the so-called "God particle," scientists are still hoping to one day find an element that Simmons is unable to catch. They are not optimistic. 


LF: Christian Yelich

It really doesn't matter if Yelich is using his glove or one belonging to "Big Fudge" -- he'll pretty much always make the catch. 


CF: Juan Lagares

There are those who insist that Juan Lagares is an illusion, that it's simply not possible that there is a center fielder with this much range. 

They may very well be right. But even if Lagares is an illusion, he's a pretty great one at that. 


RF: Jason Heyward

Many great ballplayers have been known to suffer as managers because they don't know how to relate to players who lack their natural skill. Thats not a problem Heyward has. 

Because even though Hewyard can catch basically anything: 


When a fan misses one, he knows how to commiserate.
