Am I the Only One Who Thinks Crawford Was An Idiot To Make the Last Out at Third?


Yes yes, Golson made the greatest throw he'll ever make and ARod put the tag on Crawford perfectly, and Crawford is the fastest guy in the majors, and if the throw had hit Crawford he probably would have gotten up and scored, but
that doesn't change the fact that going to third was just plain stupid.  The Yankees caught a huge break.

As soon as Golson caught the ball, there were two outs. The benefit of being on third was, what?  Mariano Rivera will throw a wild pitch?  How often does he do that?  When was the last time he threw a slider or curve into the dirt? When was the last time he threw a slider or a curve?

Rivera will be rattled by a runner on third as opposed to second?  When has he ever been rattled by anything?

Crawford would certainly score from third but not from second?  Seriously?  The fastest guy in the league, starting on contact with two out?  He might even have scored on an infield hit.

Thanks a lot Carl.  You took a foolish risk and ended the game.  We won't forget your generosity.
