They aren't getting a benefit. The ball is live and they have to hunt the ball down and make a play. Also, the penalty of throwing the ball away is that the batter who would've been out already got a base. Going from there is a risk to both teams. Proceed at your own discretion.

Would you also like the runners who take off on a steal to be able to stop if they don't get the right jump and go back to the base without risk of being thrown out?

But they are getting a benefit.  The reason the runner is on first is because the ball was thrown away.  And he's still on first base.  By marginally shifting his shoulders towards second base doesn't put him on second base.

It's not like he was caught in a rundown.

It's not that he marginally shifted his shoulder towards first base. It's that he made a clear attempt to go to 2B. You can actually run inside the line and not be tagged out. But you can't make a move to second without risk.

Double given up to the opposing pitcher is always game.

More evidence that we can not go into next season with Werth as our everyday CF

What?

He's not the same guy that got 14K's quite yet.

If Debbi never says the word hoopla again, it will be too soon.

He's never going to be the 14K pitcher again.  That's not who he/they want him to be.
