GIF: Cardinals make clumsiest putout in recorded history
On Friday night, the Cardinals pulled off the most accidental of 3-1-3 putouts. Please witness.
Is the headline above overselling things? Is the 3-1-3 (!) putout to follow really the clumsiest in recorded history? Judge for yourself what events and ham-fists conspired to bring about in Friday night's Phillies-Cardinals game (PHI 5, STL 1) ...
OK, so Ryan Howard was almost certainly obstructed by the tumbling Trevor Rosenthal, but why let such literalism get in the way of a good thing. That's a strongly rhetorical question -- the answer to which is strongly implied -- so I didn't include a question mark at the end.
Anyhow, if you still don't think this is the clumsiest putout in recorded history (3-1-3!), then press play below and watch the above GIF again, this time through opened eyes.
Good. Glad we're now in agreement.
