Andrew McCutchen’s Single Turned Into An Inside-The-Park Homer Because, Well, The Minnesota Twins Forgot How To Play Baseball

by 4 years ago

Remember playing Little League and having the simplest of plays turn into a full-fledged shitshow, with a routine single somehow ending as a two-run triple because of a bunch of throwing errors and incompetent play?

Yeah, those days were miserable—especially for parents, I’m sure—as a four-hour game that started at 6 p.m. had to be called due to darkness at 10 p.m. because the score was 26-21 after the kids on the field proved that this wasn’t the sport for them.

Well, apparently, that inept play reared its ugly head during a game between the Minnesota Twins and the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday afternoon, as the Twinkies channeled their inner teenager who had no idea what they were doing on the baseball field.

After a routine single to right field by former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates, a comedy of errors soon followed.

First, the ball scooted by Twins right fielder Eddie Rosario, who was probably in right field because, of course, the worst kids always play that position in Little League.

As the ball rolled to the wall, allowing McCutchen to get to third, the relay throw wound up being just as shitty as Rosario’s attempt to play the one hop hit, as it sailed into the dugout as the batter took home plate for a score.

Oh, let’s not forget the collision the base-runner had with Minnesota third baseman Eduardo Nunez on his way to heading for him.

You guys, these are major league baseball players, and, without a doubt, one of the worst displays of defense that I have ever seen in my entire life. Maybe the Twins were just drunk? Yeah, let’s just blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol.
