    Great Play by Florimon...

    Bad play by Morneau... Step off the flipping base and field it.

    Bad throw as well though. Probably can share the blame on that one.

    Florimon had no chance but he was trying with everything he's got. He had zero time to make an impossible play.

    Morneau had time to assess the situation. Morneau had time to realize that the runner was already across 1st base... Morneau had time to move his feet and knock it down.

    If he had zero chance then he shouldn't have thrown and saved a run from scoring

    Yes I agree but when you are in the middle of that... You don't have time to assess.

    It's Dive... Catch... Get Up... And throw... He wouldn't even know where the base runner is.

    He was giving the team something extra trying to stop a run... If he makes a bad throw... His teammate at first has to pick him up. Kudos to Florimon... Boos for Morneau.

    I guess we'll agree to disagree. I have a hard time blaming Morneau for Florimon's bad throw.

    He made a great play but a bad throw. There is no boo for Mirneau on that imo

    Than Disagreement it is. And I will Hurl this Insult:

    Chief took an IQ test and the results came back negative.

    OK.. I've lost... Except.... Ummm...

    If Florimon errored... It was an effort Error... If Morneau didn't error. It was because he was pylon esque.

    I'll take the effort guy Everytime.

    I blame Morneausie for that.

    Although upon review, might have been Doumit's pitch framing.
