Rockies Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez Is Not a Good Actor and Other Relatively Boring Walkoff Observations
Sep 10, 2012, 10:58 AM EDT
The Phillies got their second walk off winner on Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park in as many games (Nate the Great did the honors on Friday night), but John Mayberry Jr.’s game-winner yesterday may have been one of the least exciting walkoffs in a while.
Perhaps he’s too honest and knew he didn’t snag the ball, but my initial reaction, and even more so after watching the replay, was to wonder why he didn’t even attempt to sell the catch?
After a brief hesitation, the umps ruled it a hit, and the Phillies got their minimally delayed walk off winner. Yay.
