4/13/07 BONEHEAD PLAY: SHANE VICTORINO

Shane Victorino

It’s probably not right to hang this bonehead play on Shane Victorino. Shane was just playing the good soldier, listening to his thirdbase coach Steve Smith, when he tried to score in the 8th inning with the Phillies down by a pair. Philadelphia had runners on 1st & 2nd when Ryan Howard lined a single to Houston rightfielder Luke Scott. Scott threw a laser to catcher Brad Ausmus, Victorino bore down on Ausmus and tried to dislodge the baseball, to no avail. Of course Pat Burrell hit into an inning ending doubleplay after the play. And the Phillies lost the game 9-6. Never a good idea to make the first out of an inning at the plate.

  2. Shane is not the bonehead, the third base coach is if any one is. I think you should make the outfielder make the throw if he is off then it looks like a good move however it was a good throw. I think this isn’t a bonehead play at all. RON
