Just a couple of weeks ago in San Francisco, Starlin Castro thought there were two outs when there was only one, and he ate the ball and started to trot off the field when he should have tried (though it was unlikely to have worked) to turn a double play. A run scored. The Cubs lost. The Cubs gritty, lump faced manager threw a hissy fit after the game. Dopes with newspaper columns called for Starlin to be benched. Dumbasses on the radio demanded the Cubs trade the “undisciplined” “unfocused” 22-year old shortstop.
Last night in a game against the Cubs, White Sox redass AJ Eyechart did this:
And a good time was had by all. Oh, what a hoot! Anthony forgot how many outs there were! Isn’t that the cutest thing ever! (Titter, titter, titter!)
So the old American forgets how many outs there are but it’s OK because it didn’t mean anything to the outcome of the game.
But when the young Dominican does it (and it doesn’t mean anything to the outcome of that game either) it causes people to run outside and set their garages on fire?
