    Does Hicks even look at the ball as it's coming in?

    Wait, are you guys actually debating if Florimon should've caught that bad in the 3rd inning? Yes, you catch that ball. It was 50 feet from 3B.

    Overlooked factor: he makes that play if he still has a healthy appendix.

    On the Florimon catch and Sox tag:

    Make the catch... Get the out.

    Let's say it was a long fly ball foul... Near the fence.

    Do you let that drop? No... You catch it and get the out.

    If Florimon let's that drop because of a potential tag. I'd sit him on the bench and tell him that he has baseball class at 6am tomorrow morning.

    Should Willingham have left that drop and set up a double play?

    Shows what I know. The guy I would say is least likely to make a nice defensive play in the outfield, makes the nice defensive play in the outfield. Good job Willy.

    LaBombo, I hope my vision of you as Walter Matthau in a satiny jacket swilling a bud is never corrupted. The vision is too perfect for your posts.

    This is why I like baseball - because the improbable can and does happen more than other sports.

    He covered more ground on that catch than in all the spring training games I saw combined.

    Maybe he was just saving up for the regular season.

    Some kid in his parents' basement works, too.

    / Oops, standards in game threads are relaxed some, but not this relaxed, I remind myself.

    Exactly. Everyone knew Shaq wasn't going to make a FT. Everyone knew Mutumbo was going to swat left and right. No one knows when Willy is going to make a great defensive play. No one knows when Jason Tyner is going to hit a missile into the bleacher seats.

    Appendix

    Author Ashburyjohn references Pedro Florimon's surgery to remove an inflamed Appendix after experience stomach pains on February 17th.

    This Appendix is healthy!!!

    Thanks, glad you like it.

    Went years without one but decided that people were probably picturing me as something even less flattering than Buttermaker. Maybe some sort of nasty hybrid of the whiny Pvt. Hudson from Aliens with some Keaton-era Joker thrown in.
