Three Things from last night

Baseball Video Highlights & Clips | ARI@WSH: Harper goes 3-for-4 with two runs scored - Video | Multimedia:

'via Blog this'

1. On Harper's first double, Parra the D'Backs CF makes a barehanded grab on the carom off the wall and makes a strong if off line throw to second.  Assume for a moment his throw was Ankielian -- it would have made for a close play at second . . . for most anyone else or someone who was admiring a drive that very well could have been his 1st career home run.  Harper however was already standing on second before the ball ever left Parra's hand.  Wow.

2. The contrast between Bob Carpenter's "call" of Desmond's game winner with Charlie's is black vs. white. Polar opposites.  MLB TV's version of the highlights keeps Carpenter's call up till Desmond swings. Then its all Charlie. We don't need Hawk Harrelson but c'mon Bob give us something.

3.  Ian I want to introduce you to one Kendrys Morales.  I know it is highly unlikely you will ever hit another walk off homer but if you do don't freaking leap to land on the plate!!!!!

  1. Thanks for mentioning Carp's terrible call on the game winning, streak busting, hustle validating, off the schneid getting, loss averting, huge WPA generating home run. That was a disgrace.
