Everyone Can Calm Down Over Rick Ankiel’s Arm Strength [VIDEO]

By         Posted in   Video

Everyone please calm down over Rick Ankiel’s arm strength. If this Ankiel throw from center to home on a fly took place on a Saturday night not a soul would notice. However, it happens on a slow Monday and you’d think Ankiel was Willie Mays. Ridiculous. Yes, the guy has a laser. Yes, the throw would have beaten the runner from third by 10 feet.

But, come on, like the 3rd base coach is going to risk an out at home in this scenario.

Posted: Last night

Premise of Video: Look at the scenario. Strong arm in center. Not really that deep of a fly ball. Plenty of time to line up a crow hop. Just hold the guy at third. No biggie.

Climax of Video: Laser!

Conclusion: Guess what happened with two outs? Yep, line drive to center, scoring two because they were running on contact. In the end, the Nats got four runs in the bottom of the sixth and won, 6-3.
