Well, since the O's are apparently going to suck in perpituity, I guess the next best thing is eliminating the Yanks or Sox from the playoffs.

lol. I'm sorry, but Revere's catch is the CLEAR winner. Don't get me wrong. Cabrera is great, but just because its an unassisted triple play doesn't mean its great. Revere's...well just watch it, it requires incredible speed, concentration and it doesn't really compare. If you've played baseball you know how hard it is just for an infielder to catch a ball over the head like that, and Revere did it in the OF, running full speed while crashing into a wall, oh yeah, and it robbed the hitter of RBIs and extra bases
