gif doesn't really do it justice, but this was a no-look pickoff (full video)

catcher successfully picking off someone is arguably the most exciting play of baseball imo
especially when it happens at 2B

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 14 March 2018 15:54 (one year ago) link

Loved reading that fangraphs piece Mookie linked to. Baseball writing is so, so good a lot of the time.

I fear I might prefer the idea of Baseball, links like that, the gifs, to actually watching matches every week.. :-/ Be kind to my mistakes.

that reminds me of when you're driving down a country road and a squirrel or rabbit crosses 80% of the road in front of you before doubling back right before you're about to pass.

weird interaction between the umpire and player here:

not sure about NPB rules but i think the player is saying that he didn't make an honest effort to get out of the way of the pitch.
