Hey, guess what? Yoenis Cespedes' rocket arm cut down yet another baserunner
We've been warned before: Stop. For the love of embarrassment in GIF, Vine, video and even short film (live action) form:
Stop running on Yoenis Cespedes' arm.
Adrian Gonzalez, during Tuesday's Mets-Dodgers game, did not heed these warnings and, well, things ended as they generally do:
The throw, all 232.1 feet of it, cut down the Dodgers first baseman for the third out of the sixth inning -- quelling any thoughts of a rally in the 2-2 contest. The Dodgers would eventually win, 3-2, on a Trayce Thompson walk-off homer.
So, what was Gonzalez thinking? Perhaps that he should be able to arrive safely at second base on a ball hit 400 feet off of the center-field wall.
Fair, but perhaps next series.
