Contrasting glove slams: Ted Lilly '07 vs. Phil Coke '12
Phil Coke spiking his glove after the Tigers won reminded me of Ted Lilly's angry spike in the 2007 playoffs. But which one was better?
Check it out, around the 13-second mark:
Lilly was pitching for the Cubs and coughed up an early lead on a 3-run homer to Chris Young. And the criminally undersized GIF has lived on the Internet for five years. Here:
The interesting thing here is the contrast. One spike was celebratory, and the other was in anger. I think we have to say Coke's was "better," due to it being excitement instead of rage. Or do we? Lilly's game wasn't over, and rarely do we see pitchers do something like this during the game.
Tough call. Get in on the voting.
