8. The Flip
Sure, maybe he was "out of position" (sidebar: Not Ever Being Affiliated With Bobby Valentine was an honorable mention entry on this list), but Derek Jeter's Flip was one of the greatest, coolest plays in baseball history. Down 0-2 to the A's in a best-of-five ALDS, Jeter's relay shuttle-throw saved the Yankees postseason. Maybe they practiced it, maybe they didn't, either way it was brilliant.
