Video of the Day: Happy 10th Anniversary Ruben Rivera baserunning blunder

11 Comments

Ten years ago today, the greatest baserunning blunder — really multiple blunders in one play — took place. And even better was Jon Miller’s call of it, with his famous “that was the worst baserunning in the history of the game!”

There was only one Ruben Rivera. Thank God.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
