yahoo: Boston Red Soxs' center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury makes a diving catch in the 8th inning against Los Angeles Angels Mark Teixeira during Game 1 of their MLB American League Divisional Series playoff baseball game in Anaheim, October 1, 2008.

Ellsbury was awesome in the Red Sox win over the Angels last night, from his 3 for 5 night from the plate (which should have been 4 for 5 as one of his hits was deemed an error by the scorer, depite the centerfielder never laying a glove on the ball), 2 stolen bases, a run, an RBI, and a great, great catch in the 8th inning. Watch the catch here on

The picture of horizontal Ellsbury reminds me of this famous picture of Bobby Orr (wikipedia):
