Greatest pitching performance ever?

David Schoenfield of ESPN says maybe so. Online voters say 40% in favor of Matt, 24% in favor of Don Larson and 24% in favor of Kerry Wood. 

Here's what he said about Gregor Blanco's catch --  The greatest I've ever seen. Gregor Blanco did not catch that ball. Impossible. Not where Jordan Schafer hit it, leading off the seventh inning. We yelled and cheered as Blanco ran forever, hauling in the uncatchable with a miraculous diving grab snared in the fingertips of his glove. My wife came downstairs, wondered what happened. We showed her the replay and counted Blanco‚Äôs strides: 15? 18? No, maybe 20. What is that, 60 feet, 70 feet?

Willie Mays, you have company.
