Play of the Day: into the dugout he goes

Jul 1, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

On the one hand: awesome into-the-dugout catch by Braves farmhand Alden Carrithers. On the other hand: where in the heck were the teammates who shoulda kept him from getting an acute case of cement poisoning after the play?

    What’s perplexing is even after he has fallen, you only see one or two teammates come to his aid. What were they all doing in there? Standing around looking like McKayla Maroney?

      Maybe that’s all there were in the dugout?

    Holy Crap!!

    Good question, where ARE his team mates?? They should be ashamed of that performance!

      “Performance” is correct. After a few people are attending to an injury, the unneeded mob that runs in later to stand around and perform concern are indeed performing, to themselves and others.

    Too be fair, since it was a minor league game, they probably weren’t paying attention. Kid looks like a hustler. Hustlers make the regular guys look bad.

    Clearly shows what they think of him…

    Check out his teammate, #4, one of the first guys to get to him. According to the Gwinnett Braves website, that would be Sean Kazmar, a 28-year old journeyman shortstop who is sporting a .523 OPS this year (explaining why he’s in the dugout while his team is on the field). Is his first thought the well-being of his teammate? Nope. He wanted to make sure he recorded the out, and that the umpire knew it. THEN he bent back down to see if his teammate was okay.

    You stay classy Kazmar.

    Teammate fail. Or maybe they just don’t like the guy.
