Sometimes, though, that speed can work against the 28-year-old outfielder. Witness this lowlight play of the day as Blanco goes from first to third and his legs get caught up underneath him.
Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen anyone stumble rounding second like that and recover in such a smooth way. It's almost as if he wanted to throw a bit of challenge into the whole play and decided to insert a headfirst slide halfway to third. Can we please get the scoring from our judges?
