Gillaspie's error was only part of what cost us the game. Abreu really should have caught that throw in my opinion as it hopped well in front of him. It took another error and a couple of tough plays that weren't turned but by no means were they sure outs. He had a bit of a brain cramp, yes, but how many of those has Alexei had in the past 2-3 seasons? He's doing ok for us now, eh?
IMO, long bounce throws are harder to corral than the ones that bounce a foot in front of the glove. Jose ain't PK, fer sure.
