    I guess the game is different a couple levels up. Filed under “let the kids play”!

    Without the pitcher covering home, smart move. But, once he saw Avila stumble, Nido put his head down and took off, not realizing the situation change in Avila catching himself when Nido was only two steps away from third base. Then, it was foolish.

    8 runs down…the run means nothing.

    It was spectacularly bad baseball — safe or not — unless you take the Tom Cruise “eff it” approach.

    I mean, if they were down 2-3 runs, it would have been criminal. Down by 8, maybe it’s just like the whole season, shrug, who cares, ha-ha.

    I like the Tom Green motif…

    Brian, on Facebook you refer to it as Daniel Murphy-like, and I considered writing that too when I first saw it, however, I remembered Murphy taking the open third base against the Dodgers on the walk to Duda, and it made all the bonehead plays go away for me.

    In the playoffs, to have that alertnesss, I can’t believe the Nationals are benefiting while the Mets are a mess.

      It was one of Murphy’s most memorable moments in a Mets uniform. However, Murph also roamed around the diamond like a deer staring at headlights on many occasions. The noodle-head attempt by Nido was very Murphy-like.
