Edward Mujica uncorks worst pick off throw ever, umpire laughs (GIF)


The Red Sox’ Edward Mujica will not be including this one on his personal highlight reel at the end of the season. He won’t be emailing a clip of this one to his grandma to show off how good he is at baseball.

In the sixth inning Saturday at Fenway Park, Mujica attempts to whirl and pick off the Tigers’ Rajai Davis. But the throw isn’t even close.

The throw is close to taking off the head of umpire Hunter Wendelstedt, who was clearly amused by Mujica’s horrible pick off aim, giving it the girlish covered-mouth giggle.

I’m telling you, there is nothing worse than having an umpire give you the old “tee hee.” That’s as humiliating as it gets. Edward Mujica, turn in your man badge and sit in the corner. You are on suspension.

Truthfully, I don’t even know how that happens. If I’m Mujica I’m faking an injury to get out of that one. I’m pretending like my arm died so the medical staff has to come lead me off.

Mujica can never look that umpire in the face again. That’s how bad it is.
