The strong-armed Hicks, who returned Thursday from a lengthy stay on the disabled list, made a one-hop throw to third base that was about 6 feet to the fair side of the base. Frazier made a backhand catch and swiped Nunez on the back as the former Yankee slid headfirst and reached for the base with his left arm.


"If it happened again tomorrow, I would take the chance tomorrow again," said Nunez, a former Yankee acquired by Boston from San Francisco last month. "That's how you play the game. That was a great throw. That was a great pick from Frazier and an amazing tag."

Eddie, honey, the throw was way offline. Next time, you get thrown out by 6 feet.




Does Noonie know how you feel about him? Surprised

Hicks has a great arm. Dumb move by Nunez.

Cardinal rule in baseball is , if you are going to try to steal third, make sure you can make it.

Except he was running on a sac fly. Cardinal rule is you don't steal third on the first or third out of an inning

Nunez is an adventure in the field and often too aggressive but I doubt the Red Sox are much more than a .500 team without him.

He's a guy with good athletic skill. I thought the Yanks were too quick to give up on him. JMO

That is also true. But, you also don't try to steal third or try to advance to third unless you know you can make it.
Being aggressive is fine , but at times (which was this case ) it can be costly.
A runner needs to know who the outfielder is and how accurate the outfielder's arm is.
Nunez under estimated Hicks arm, and it cost him.
But.
This the kind of plays he did when he was on the Yankees.
Never was a doubt he could hit. But, he had a tendency to make errors and base running mistakes.

sorry, it was an agrressive play that took a good play by 2 defensive players. There are times to take a chance and I think last night was one of them. Speed makes the game fun to watch and he provided that for the Yanks. The one legit argument is he got hurt a lot.

You've got to be kidding, he's putting the RS over the .500 ?? He's been hot for a week or so, lets see how he finishes the year.. But I doubt Nunez is a team changer, at least he never was with the other teams he played with......
