Nelson Cruz hasn’t had many home runs taken away this year, but Leonys Martin of the Rangers got him Wednesday night, and the catch was so impressive that even Cruz had to show the man proper respect.

Martin’s teammate Miles Mikolas is also impressed by Martin’s effort. Everyone is impressed when a home run is taken away. Or “robbed” as the kids say. Even though “robbed a home run” is grammatically stupid. Robbing a home run would mean you stole something from the home run. How can you steal something from a concept? It’s dumb.

Not to go all language Nazi on the deal. I realize it’s only baseball. Oh what the hell, Martin robbed a home run. There are you happy? Now I’m wallowing in the grammatical pig trough with everyone else.

Anyway, that was a heck of a play by Leonys Martin. He was like, “Suck it Nelson Cruz, you’re not getting another home run.”

And Cruz was like, “Okay man I see you. Nice.”

And Mikolas was like, “OOOOOOOH damn did you see what that man did?”

Yeah, we saw. It was a nice robbing. Robbery. Theft. What the hell ever.
