Montero, What Were You Thinking?

Thrown Out at Second Base in the Ninth With Your Team Down 4

Miguel Montero, you just made history. With your team, the Arizona Diamondbacks, down 5-1 with two out in the bottom of the ninth of the first game of the NLCS, you singled to left. Then, inexplicably, with the base totally meaningless, you tried to stretch your hit to a double and Matt Holliday threw you out. You’re a catcher! And you’re trying to stretch down 4!

I know, you reached second, but you never possessed the bag before you overslid it and were tagged out by second baseman Kaz Matsui. So it’s just a single in the box score.

And in the write-ups, talk-ups, and minds of every D-Back fan … heck, every baseball fan … it was one dumb play. And you did it in the Championship Series. At least if you never do anything else in your career, you will be remembered.
