I feel bad for picking on Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe. Earlier today we saw him get embarrassed by a 61 mph Yu Darvish curveball, and then this happened on Saturday night:

The worst part is that the hitter, the well-traveled Adam Rosales, didn't even make much of attempt to get to second base on the play. He took a wide turn and stayed at first, so Plouffe was throwing with urgency for no reason. Shortstop Pedro Florimon deserves some blame for letting the little ground ball get by him as well.

Anyway, Plouffe probably won't be including his series in his career highlight reel. That's for sure.
