Sounds about right. Last major leaguer I heard about getting gunned down from the outfield while trying to run to 1st was Jeff D'Amico, who weighed 250 (although according to baseball-reference.com he's a lot taller).

Fun fact from b-r: Billy Butler's nickname is "Country Breakfast":  http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/b/butlebi03.shtml

Jeff D'Amico smacked what would have been a game-tying single to right with two out.  He even ran hard.  BJ Surhoff jogged to the ball, picked it up, and fired a hard strike to first.  Not THAT much urgency.  Beat him by a stride.  Augh.

Was that the situation? Why didn't he get pulled for a pinch hitter?

Wouldn't surprise me if this starts becoming routine on hits to right field on artificial turf -- that is, the RF tries to gun down the runner at first more often, which would be cool.  It could result in more throwing errors, however, which suggests no one will try it with runners already aboard.

Steve Pearce (playing for Baltimore), got gunned down at first base while I was playing in college, the center fielder threw it so perfect his damn right shoe came off in the process.
He was out by a foot, but it still would of made the highlights if anyone actually gave a fark about the sport.

/the center fielder was a converted pitcher who could throw 95, but no where near a strike zone, problem was he couldn't hit either and never made it past college

You mean D'Amico? He hadn't even reached first base yet.

Just looked it up.  The Mets were up 1-0 in the 2nd inning when it happened.  Had D'Amico reached safely, it would have been 2-0.

Poor Aaron Brooks is probably not going to pitch in the bugs again for a while. Today's outing for him was Mazzaro-esque.

After yesterday this was badly needed.  I try not to go overboard with wins or losses but the last thing the Jays needed was to get swept by KC after peeling off 9 in a row.

I always love writing 9-3 on my scorecard. One of my favorite plays in the game.
 
2014-05-31 06:04:14 PM
Stroman looked good.  would be a nice addition to the rotation if he can continue like that.  Deadly slider
 
2014-05-31 06:04:30 PM
My friends and I always called Billy Butler "Donkey" after we heard some guy heckling him with that at a minor league game. This is why.

Is there a trick on the dropped 3rd strike?  I don't think I've beaten one of those yet.

Jason Heyward does this on a semi regular basis

I heard that the crowd mock cheered him on his way out. The only time that's ever acceptable is if it's AJ Burnett. I don't want my team to be known as bandwagon assholes

Grin.  Kind of a good play by the 1st baseman too isn't it?  If this is the second time in as many days for the fielder to do this, I guess he would hustle up and cover the bag though.

Fat guy+ sharply hit ball to right fielder=out almost every time.

I tried to find a video of Pablo Ozuna throwing out Sean Casey at first from left. The only one I could get was this eyesore:

Literally as I was reading this thread LSU almost pulled this off vs Houston. Called safe but it was debateable

Still a little left in that guy. I was at that first game. One of the best throws I ever saw, although I saw Matt Stairs make a similar one a couple of years earlier. That dude had a gun.

And if you watch, you can see the catcher also knew the ball was coming to first and he was there for the backup.
 
2014-06-01 01:38:51 PM
Apparently it's the second one he's done in as many days.  Looks like he's got everyone prepped for it.

I know Alex Gordon lead the league last year, but as a Rangers fan, I really enjoyed watching Leonys Martin do his thing last year.
 
2014-06-01 10:18:30 PM
Jesse Barfield used to do it fairly often.  He had the benefit of playing on a lot of really hard artificial turf fields, though, where line drives and hard ground balls would get to the RF in an instant, but he had a cannon for an arm, too.
