Upton Steals Home

Watching Carl Crawford hit a triple is one of baseball’s most exciting plays, but how about watching B.J. Upton steal home?

Upton caught Brian Tallet sleeping in the first inning when the Jays left-hander threw over to first trying to keep Crawford from stealing second. Upton appeared to anticipate what Tallet was thinking and took off for home, sliding across the plate and easily beating the throw to tie the score at 1.

It makes me chuckle sometimes to see how a small miscalculation, or a short lapse in concentration by an opposing pitcher when one of our speedsters is on base can lead to a run. Fun stuff!

I still can’t believe how fast Upton is. No wonder pitchers cringe when he gets on base.

Speaking of the king of theives. Is anyone going to Friday’s game that would like to give away or sell their free Carl Crawford poster??

E-mail me please🙂
