It was 'Magic Johnson' -- or just magic

MILWAUKEE -- Some plays you want to see again.

Some plays you know you'll see again . . . and again . . . and again.

And if you didn't see what Yuniesky Betancourt did Monday night at Miller Park, don't worry, because you will. And no, no matter what you've heard about the Brewer shortstop, this won't be on the blooper reel.

No matter what you think about the Brewer shortstop, when you see this, you'll admit that he just made the play of the year.

It came in the eighth inning of the Brewers' 4-3 win over the Padres, and it had Brewers fans cheering even louder than they cheered earlier in the night for Zack Greinke. It had Betancourt, the other guy the Brewers got in that Greinke trade, smiling the biggest smile of the night.

And it had everyone else saying, "No, he didn't just do that."

But he did.

Will Venable was on first base, with nobody out. Jason Bartlett hit a ground ball up the middle, far to Betancourt's left. He gloved it, then shoveled from his glove, behind his back, to second baseman Rickie Weeks. Weeks caught it bare-handed, then threw to first to double up Bartlett.


"I didn't really know what happened until I looked at the replay and saw he did the Magic Johnson piece," first baseman Prince Fielder said. "Then I was trying to throw the ball around to Rickie, and he was still high-fiving."

In a one-run game, it was a huge play. Try to remember that when you see it later this week . . . and later this season . . . and for years to come.

Or just watch it here, with a great call from Brewers TV guy Brian Anderson ("Oh my goodness! Did that just happen?")

"It was a pretty awesome play," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "An incredible play."

I saw it live, and I've seen the replay six or seven times.

And I still want to see it again.
