Judging the Royals

Mike Moustakas and the fine art of infield defense

If memory serves—and it often doesn’t—it was the top of the ninth, the bases were loaded, there were two outs, the Royals were up by one run and Alex Rodriguez was at the plate. (To be honest I thought it was Derek Jeter, but Mike Moustakas says it was A-Rod, so we’ll go with Mike’s version.) Rodriguez hit a weak grounder to third; if Moustakas could throw out A-Rod, game over—the Royals would win. Fail to make the play and the runner on third would cross the plate—the score would be tied.
