Jose picked off second. How unbelievable is that? That should ensure that Royce stays in the line-up at short for a while.

Thats just awful by Jose, you stay on that base and play it conservative when you have Maggs on deck, very big error.

Well, not to defend it at all, but just for the people who can't see it, Jose didn't just get picked off because of a mental error or anything like that. He didn't have a huge lead, he slipped on the wet dirt on his way back.

But, that is a HUGE MENTAL MISTAKE! That is NO time to get happy feet!

I had a feeling there had to be more to that story. Nonetheless, how often does someone get picked at 2nd?

Exactly. I'm not defending it, but he just didn't get picked off. I'll bet Muser just outduked his former player (Muser was one of Valentin's minor league managers)
