Victor Martinez may have given us the web gem of the year yesterday during a game against the Red Sox. Martinez knocked down a Jacoby Ellsbury line drive and then blindly flipped it to Drew Smyly covering first base.
Take a look.
Scary thing is that Victor has only played a handful of games at first base this year. The team’s everyday DH was simply filling in for Prince Fielder who needed a day off in the field. Bet Jacoby wished he had the less mobile of the two.
