I'm nit picking here, and setting myself up to be knocked down, but was I the only one who thought Nate played Glaus' HR poorly? Lanny kept harping on how hard Nate went into the wall, but I couldn't help but think that had he done a better job of knowing where the wall was, the play is very makable. That ball squeaked over the wall and was very catchable if the jump is timed properly.

Easier said than done, I know.....................


I agree with you here. Actually, watching it live, I thought Nate brought the ball down with him... but it wasn't even really close watching the replay. I think if he had been playing a few steps deeper in center he would have had that sucker in his glove.

Thank you for being easy on me! The ball did hit the top of the fence, but had there been a bit more loft, Nate has a much better chance. The ball was a frozen rope.


Exactly my thoughts. The ball was hit so hard that Nate did not have a chance to "time" his jump.
