I Reed Johnson

And not just because he's got an awesome gay porn name.*

Yesterday in Milwaukee, bottom of the 5th with no outs, the Cubs up by 4, the bases loaded, and the Brewers' awesome slugger Prince Fielder on the plate, Dempster throws a fat one over the plate. Fielder whacks the everloving shit out of it, and it's a goner—he's going to get the first grand slam of his career.

Enter Reed Johnson with some major-league pwnage.

UPDATE: The video can also be seen here if that one's no longer available.

Cubs' left-fielder Alfonso Soriano called Johnson's catch over the 8-foot wall "unbelievable...the best catch I've seen in my career."

It's almost bittersweet for me, because, although I'm a diehard Cubs fan, I really like Prince Fielder a lot—and did even before he "saluted Johnson with a tip of his batting helmet as he walked off the field."



* But not even the best gay porn name in the Cubs organization. That honor goes to Mr. Richard Harden.
