I’ve watched the Andres-Torres-missing-first-base-on-his-double play from yesterday’s Mets-Cardinals game several times now. I won’t go to the mattresses over it because I will acknowledge that it was close, but I’m still convinced that he touched first base because it looks like his foot was half on and half off something as he rounded.
“If you touch the base right there and you get called out, myself, I would get thrown out of the game (arguing) if I touched that base. He didn’t really react to it. So, I guess he didn’t touch it.”
Reminds me of that bit in “Homicide: A Year on the Killing Steets” when the detective tells David Simon that you know you have your murderer when he goes to sleep in his cell or in the interview room. He’s finally relaxed and not worried because he knows the jig is up.
Yep, just like that.
