It just keeps happening
Remember that Ty Wigginton baserunning error on Tuesday that got everybody all up in arms? Well, Aubrey Huff did almost exactly the same thing in the eighth inning today, getting thrown out stretching at second base in a situation where the risk didn't come close to being worth the reward.
Instead of hot-hitting Nolan Reimold coming up with a chance to tie the game, the Orioles were out of the inning. Can't believe that nobody is learning from these fundamental mistakes. Who knows what Reimold would have done in that situation, but when you're trying to come back from a four-run deficit in the eighth or ninth inning, the focus is on getting in a position where one swing can tie the game. Huff got them into that position with his RBI hit and then took them out of it by overplaying his hand -- and overrating his legs.
This isn't just about Wigginton and Huff. This team has been defeating itself on the bases regularly all season.
With all due respect to comedian Ron White, you can fix stupid, and it's time for Dave Trembley and the coaching staff to do something about this team's inept performance on the bases.
