I've had that thought quite a few times watching baseball, when a runner is on third and the catcher just gives that lazy-ass flip of the ball back to the mound: "I bet a fast runner could have stolen home."

Someone finally figured it out, looks like.

Figures it happens against the hapless Rockies.

Good for Peralta.

Don't give Carlos Gomez any ideas.

A look towards third would show a runner with a big lead ready to take off.

LOL wonderful!

Yeah, the pitcher probably could have thrown him out if he'd been paying attention prior to the pitch.  Good for Peralta for taking advantage of them being lazy.

Yeah, both that steal and the Rollins double steal were caused by lazy play on one side and heads-up play on the other. I mean, who lobs back to the mound with a runner on third?

Looked like he was about 1/3rd of the way home already when the catcher threw it, too.

He had been increasing his lead with just about every pitch because he saw that they weren't paying attention. It was very risky (just 1 pickoff attempt would've nailed him), but it worked.

That happens quite a bit in little league...especially if the catcher-pitcher aren't paying attention.  In this case it looks like the ball slipped out of the catcher's hand when he was throwing it back..making it an easy steal.

I'd forgotten about that.  That was back when the Phillies were kicking ass.

How many unwritten rules did this show-boater just violate?  Learn the game, asshole.

I don't follow MLB, but I'm guessing this was a Pro-Am tournament.  I mean, no one who throws like that catcher could get paid for playing baseball.

Considering the teams playing, you could call everyone involved "amateur."

Well, Rollins and Peralta are pros. Don't know the catcher or third baseman, but I think both should be fined by their teams as a lesson. Then cattleprodded anally with video for our amusement. Then....?

Pitcher dropped it, too. But I think Peralta would've made it anyway.

Seriously. No respect for the game. They were up 4-1! No need for that.

He's got power, too. Hit a grand slam that just cleared the pool area tonight.

only bone headed move I made in high school; is when I was called to close out the first game - i was working from the stretch with a runner on third and we were ahead 5-1, the Batter decided to wait until I "set" then called times and stepped out of the box; I wound up and kept the ball in my hand; the umpire didn't call "times" so it was obvious a balk.

/Still waiting for someone to pull that shiat on a pitcher, I should of just threw but he timed it right.

"Times?" Was this Canadian ball or something?
