    How does a man such as Villar become such an
    Unexpected hero when confronted by the
    Shady shenanigans of the Orioles who
    Taunted him by leaving out a
    Left-handed pitcher instead of an
    Established right-handed pickoff pitcher

    I think attempts to steal a base is one of the most exciting things in baseball, especially when you listen to the radio and can’t see the play unfolding. But this makes all other SB attempts shine a little less bright because of its sheer awesomeness.
