We all saw his reaction, he wanted to score the tying run, but he got gunned down!

   Nunez did not make a "bad play" last night. He tried to get to third so he could score on an out. That is the conventional wisdom. The fact that everyone is talking about the fine play of Hicks and even Frazier to get the out tells you that Nunez made a good decision. In this case, Nunez made the right decision but the Yankees made the great play. It happens.  




All true, but had the throw been right at the bag, Frazier would have had time to go into the dugout for a drink and get back out before Nunez started his slide.


Seriously, it was a heads up play and a good, but not great, throw by Hicks but it was a great catch and tag by Frazier.




   The "great play" was as much cerebral as physical. One of the hardest things about playing all three outfield spots is having your bearings to react quickly no matter where you are on the field. I am not a Hicks booster, there were times I wanted to run him out of town...but he did a great job last night.

Nunez was out because his helmet didn't fly off

Hicks throw was good, but not the best. Imagine if it was more in line. he would of been out by a mile. No sense on running on hicks who was not even that far.
