Perfect that they used the 3 Stooges Ad on the replay.  He was the 4th stooge on that play, but he smoked Tampa this afternoon.

WTF? The guy was safe, wasn't he?

I've heard of a delayed steal, but a delayed slide?

Yeah he was safe. The commentary at the end on the secondary pounce had me laughing for a good half hour. Had to tape it.

Yea, he was safe.  He completed a triple lindy to get there though.

 We can hear the jokes flying in the clubhouse now.

Shoppach's a cool guy. Everybody likes him. Somebody should draw a picture of second base and put it on his locker. (90 feet) not 80.

Pretty good day all-in-all...

3 for 4 with 2 rbi's and 3 runs scored.

And one big brain fart on the base paths.

BTW, I especially enjoyed the face plant
and the helmet flying off his head for special effects.

From that view it almost looks like he did it on purpose so he could clip the shortstop.  After he comes up he dives into him.  Dude had a hell of day.
