That's not Anderson's fault though. His coaches have to be communicating with him that the ball got away. When you're picked off like that, you're only focusing on getting to 2nd base.

 

that's bulls*** fathom. they threw the ball away...so who's back there backing up...nobody. That's first to 3rd easily.

I don't know...I think from the reaction of the infielders, and the fact that there's a distinctly different noise from the crowd when the ball is careening down towards the bullpen versus a successful pick-off, I just wonder why Anderson wasn't looking at the 3rd base coach?

 

I just remember someone like Jose Valentin running the bases, and thinking he would have scored easily...even though he wasn't a particularly fast runner. He never seemed to make demonstrable mistakes like that, though.
