Video: Josh Harrison escaped in a crazy rundown last night

25 Comments

Josh Harrison’s double in the bottom of the 11th inning gave the Pirates the 3-2 win over the Mets. A more exciting play? A rundown he found himself in between second and third in the bottom of the 10th. Now, personally, I’m not sure how he’s not out of the baseline on a couple of those flops. Watch: at one point he’s literally laying on the grass:

But he was called safe. And it ended up not mattering given that he didn’t score that inning. But man, I’m not sure how he’s in the baseline there.

The Mets announced a few minutes ago that they have traded Wilmer Font to Toronto for cash considerations.

Font was acquired by the Mets from Tampa Bay for a player to be named later back in early May. That player to be named later was later named: Neraldo Catalina. Catalina is 19 and is playing rookie ball right now. The Mets have now turned him into cash. I suppose we’ll see if that was a good idea in a few years.

As for the Jays, they get a pitcher who posted a 5.79 ERA in 10 relief appearances for the Rays and then started three games and relieved 12 in New York to the tune of a 4.94 ERA. On the season he has a combined K/BB ratio of 42/18 in 45 innings.

He’s an arm. He cost cash. That’s about all I have to say about that.
