Monday night the Rockies’ Charlie Blackmon experienced one of those nightmare plays that happen to outfielders sometimes when you just can’t get a handle on the ball no matter what you do. Dee Gordon’s triple to left bounces all over the place and no matter what he does, Blackmon just can’t corral it.
Blackmon must’ve felt like everything was going in slow motion, just like in a bad dream. By the time the carnage was over, the speedy Gordon had come all the way around to score. Gordon was credited with a triple on the play and Blackmon was hit with the error.
You could’ve given Blackmon two errors on that play, quite frankly. By the time it was over Blackmon probably felt like kicking the ball all the way back into the infield. But he probably would’ve just missed and fallen on his butt. It was that kind of night for Blackmon.
Stupid baseball, JUST SIT STILL SO I CAN PICK YOU UP! That baseball is just toying with Blackmon. That baseball is straight trolling.
