GIF: Shoppach Steals a Base

In the box score of our day, this was an “SB.”

In the box score of the future, this will be an “SBOMGLOLZFUBARWTF.”

A pound fit for brosephs to @CurseofBenitez for the GIF, and an arched eyebrow at Kelly Shoppach.

    I’m pretty sure that is the fake slide to pull the defender off the bag then 2nd effort stolen base. It’s a legit strategy that’s sweeping T-Ball and Drunken Softball leagues around the nation.

    What the heck is Jose Molina doing there, triple clutching and still throwing the ball 15 feet off the mark?

    There was a runner on 3rd, trying to keep him honest, then Shoppach was so slow he decided to throw anyway (and missed)

    This is the baserunning equivalent of “effectively wild.”

    It dawned on me that if he’d done this in Toronto, because of the fact they only have dirt around the bases, he’d have dived onto the AstroTurf. What a sight that would have made for.
