Watch the A’s turn a triple play (you know you want to)

Aug 22, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

Last night the A’s turned their first triple play since 2000. I was watching live and the victims were my beloved Twins, but I’ve still re-watched the video a few times:

Adam Rosales did a helluva job catching the throw, standing strong, and getting off a good throw to first base.

    That’s nifty!

    I remember seeing the last one AGAINST the A’s. CC on the mound and just half an inning earlier Arod got into it with Braden for walking on “his” mound.

    Excellent play! You have to give moxie points to the Twins though; they did not make it easy. Rosales was almost taken out with the slide, and the batter did not let up and nearly beat the throw to first.

    That is one of the many ways baseball beats other sports. You watch and applaud the great play, even when the other guy is doing it to your team.

    And Francisco is right, that one wasn’t cheap.

    If you’ve seen the movie, The Odd Couple, with the legendary Lemmon and Mathau, you’ve enjoyed one of the great baseball scenes in cinema history. Enjoy it again:

    Damn! That was like going from Oakland to Fremont to San Jose real quick like.
