Reds management is like "yeah, we're loaded at shortstop. We didn't need that guy."

Why'd the runner on second try to advance on that short fly? If the SS hadn't caught that the left fielder probably would have.

If you pause at 4 seconds you can see the baserunner had taken a few steps off the bag and was facing left field just watching. There was obviously confusion between LF and SS... at 7 seconds in the left fielder backs off and is looking at Iglesias. When it seemed like it may drop in, the runner probably took off. Yeah, it was risky baserunning, but it did take a miracle, no-look-swipe-of-the-glove highlight reel catch to make it a bad baserunning decision. Had it dropped in the baserunner would have looked brilliant for reading the play as well as he did.
