Check out the hose on Ian Desmond

Washington Nationals Ian Desmond leaps to throw out New York Mets Dillon Gee in MLB game New York

Sorry, I just like saying that. Not sure if you can all an infielder’s arm a “hose” — I’ve only heard it in connection with outfielders — but if it’s even borderline, I’m gonna use “hose” regardless. Because I’m 12 years-old.

Anyway, he made an amazing throw from the hole — with his hose — to retire Dillon Gee last night.  I don’t care that it was the pitcher running. It was fantastic.

    Craig, that headline is wrong on so many levels!

      I was scared to open the article because I was afraid the picture was going to be a little too clear for my preference

      It should bring some new traffic to the site, though.

    As a former 12 year old, I can assure you that “hose” refers to something other than throwing arm.

    his defense has really improved since playing regularly in 2010…i remember when he had multiple errors trying to make basic throws to first…

    So one could call you a hosehound?

    Fact: His hose is often in different area codes.

    Well the video said from “short left field,” so technically the “hose” comment holds water.

    If only he played for the Blue Jays, he could be a hoser.

    I was impressed until I saw it was the opposing pitcher he got out. Its like throwing out David Ortiz.

    Well you have implied before than an infielders hose was like an arm before, so there’s that.
