Hit or error?
There’s been a lot of debate in the press box about Clete Thomas’ infield single in the eighth inning last night. Was it indeed a single, or should Luis Valbuena, who struggled to get a grip on the ball, have been charged with an error? Can you make the assumption that Valbuena would have thrown Thomas out, had he not double-clutched?
Watch the play here. It’s a polarizing issue in these parts. What do you think?
Oh, and while we’re in the business of watching clips, I find this call of Curtis Granderson’s catch highly entertaining. It’s not quite as good as the Herb Score classic — “And the Indians are going to the World Series! … Maybe” — but it’s still pretty good. Al Pawlowski was just as duped as the rest of us — and understandably so.
