Can we please call an end to this kind of comment?
The scene: Yankees-Red Sox, top of the first. One out, nobody on. Robinson Cano hits a blooper to left, which Manny misplays. Cano stupidly tries to stretch it to third, and is gunned down for Manny's league leading 11th outfield assist.
"As strange as it may sound, if you're going to gamble to try to stretch it to third, you can do it with one out. You can make the second out at third, because you're gaining an advantage if you get there."
Michael Kay, in all of your infinite baseball wisdom, please explain why it is just as good to have nobody on with two outs as it is to have a man on second with one out. Especially when your next three batters are Sheffield, A-Rod, and Hideki Matsui (who is hitting .477 in his last 11 games). How is that okay?
Postscript: Sheffield walks, A-Rod singles him to third, Matsui flies out. The Yankees should be winning 1-0.
