    Thank you Kolton Wong

    OK, there have been a number of errors and miscues by both teams with some of them being very costly, but none compares in boneheadedness to this one.  

    Here's Koji Uehara catching Kolton Wong for the #WalkoffPickoff:

    Think about it.  He's not even the friggn tying run, and the winning run in Carlos Friggn Belran is up at the plate.

    Agreed that was an absurdely stupid move, but I think it unlikely that it changed the outcome of the game. Koji would have finished it off without Kolten Wrong - see what I did there?

    Mistakes and bad calls with a little late inning drama sprinkled with some pretty good pitching and timely hitting...about sums up the first four games....

    Yeah I disagree - definitely not the worst miscue we have seen. This has been a poorly played series so far on both sides and others have directly corresponded with allowing the opponent to score (or actually win a game...did you watch what happened in Game 3?). There is nothing tangible here that says "had Wong not gotten picked off, the outcome would have been different".

    Did anyone else notice in that replay that Napoli may have taken a page from the Tampa Bay playbook?  Wong was almost completely blocked from getting to the bag and had to reach around Napoli's ankle to even get to the side of the bag.

    And Napoli has been a catcher most of his career. It's in his blood to block the base.

    Ok... I wasn't aware of that.  But I remember that certain of us here (me included) had a hissy-fit when a Red Sox player was blocked from the base during a steal.  What goes around  comes around, I guess.  :-)

    S5, I did notice that although in this case the throw did beat the runner plus it was right on the money.  The foot helped, but wasn't decisive. 

    In the Rays series I also noticed the SS or 2B, when taking a throw from home on an attempted steal of 2B, was also blocking 2B with their foot.

    Getting picked off there is a absolute sin in baseball.

    The best part was listening to McCarver and Buck droning on and on about how Napoli shouldn't be holding Wong on and was leaving a hole in the right side of the infield.Then before Wong knew what was happening. ....

    Awesome pic! The play reminded me of Paps picking off Holliday in 2007.

    That was awesome. It appears the Sox new exactly what they were doing. Loved it. Even the camera did not catch it live. Buck and McCarver were stunned. Farrell did not even know it was happening until it happened. That being said, McCarver actually praised the Sox during the game at times. Shocking. Great ending after having suffered game 3s ending.

    Those two have turned omens into an art form this post season.

    Blocking the base is OK for any fielder.  When guys use to slide feet first, the deal was you can block the base but I'm going to some in spikes-high.  Fielders were a little more careful about blocking.

    There is absolutely no excuse for getting picked off there. Two outs, two runs down, a legitimate power hitter in Beltran at the plate. I blame the coach as much as the player. He has to know better. Anyway, about time we got a break.

    Funny...a fielder can block the base, but he can't obstruct the path to the base.
