Watch Daniel Murphy make a baseball disappear

May 16, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

You seem to have a hole in your outfield fence, St. Louis:

Then the wall was all like “nom nom nom”

    Anyone else seeing “This video is unfortunately not available for sharing at this time. Please click here to watch it at” in the last few articles?

      Yes. I’d wager Saturday’s Powerball jackpot that it’s MLB disallowing their videos to be embedded on other sites. You have to go to their site and watch it, and then watch the next videos that auto-play until you make it stop.

      I wanted to see the video and can’t get on the MLB site (stupid work filters) I see that the video is working now, so I wonder if MLB has a 24 hour delay on imbedding or something stupid like that.

    Shouldn’t any ball that disappears on to the other side of the wall be a home run?

      Used to be. Changed the rule in 1918 I believe.

    Mets need Argenis Reyes back. World Series 2013…mark, my, words.

    I love the announcers almost debating whether they should fix the wall or not

    • natslady - May 16, 2013 at 4:50 PM

      If the home team doesn’t want to fix the wall it should definitely be a least a triple for the opposing team, if not an inside-the-park home run. Um, kidding. Sort of.

    Good presence of mind by Carlos Beltran.

    Here is the Mets playing “small ball.”

    Rick Ankiel hits a ground-rule double (4) on a line drive down the left-field line.
    On-field Delay.
    2. Ruben Tejada singles on a ground ball to left fielder Allen Craig. Rick Ankiel to 3rd.
    3. Jon Niese strikes out on a foul bunt.
    4. Jordany Valdespin bunt pops out to catcher Yadier Molina in foul territory.
    5. Daniel Murphy walks. Ruben Tejada to 2nd.
    Pitching Change: Fernando Salas replaces Randy Choate, batting 9th.
    Coaching visit to mound.
    6. David Wright lines out softly to second baseman Matt Carpenter.

      The Baseball Gods didn’t want Ankiel to score, since he’d really been thrown out at second and it was only an utterly awful call by the third base umpire that put him on base.

      But alas…the bad guys won. Avoiding the sweep. Thanks for the update/run down nonetheless lady! I am work. Couldn’t watch it.

      • neoshweaty - May 16, 2013 at 6:10 PM

        God, I wish this mets team had a half the talent of the “Bad guys won” 86 team. I wasn’t even alive and I’m constantly thinking about how cool that time was in mets history.

    Baseball is weird sometimes

    Have you ever seen little Kim make a sprite can disappear?

    • dexterismyhero - May 17, 2013 at 10:01 AM

      Boom!!!! Well done!!!

    Million-to-one shot, doc. Million-to-one.

    After a lengthy review, Angel Hernandez calls it a homerun!!
