I missed that, what happened?

Strike three that bounced, he swung at and went wildly bouncing off towards the O's dugout. Instead of running, he decided to argue that he made contact with the ball (replay showed he didn't)... finally the catcher tracked down the ball and tagged him out at home.

Thanks. Maybe it's a good thing I didn't see it.  Things like that drive me crazy.  I have seen this sort of thing, maybe a handful of times in my life, when a player stops to argue rather than playing out the play, and without exception the player has been a moron.  A good example: Milton Bradley.   I have never been impressed by Desmond's intelligence (listening to him being interviewed) and based on this, I'm ready to put him in the moron category.

Smart enough to cozy up to the owner's daughter.  Shanahan would have cut a player who stopped to argue with a ref while the ball was still in play.

Marla Lerner has blabbed on air before how much she just adores Ian Desmond.... and how he's her favorite Nat for all his work in the community.

Thanks!

But that doesn't mean Desi is cozying up.   Seems to be the other way around.

The Braves are streaky as hell. Wouldn't surprise me at all if they follow up this hot streak with a 7 or 8 game losing streak. Also, they need to get some pitching help if they want to go anywhere. Braves pitching is not good enough.

This is a team with playoff-level talent and potential. They just haven't played like the past 4-5 games.

We don't have to win the division to be a playoff team.

True.  But we're still in first place by 2.5 games.
