Rookie Rockies pitcher, Ubaldo Jimenez, had pitched well in his duel against the Red Sox veteran star Curt Schilling. The Rockies were down 2-1 in the top of the 8th with 2 out. Matt Holliday just smacked his fourth hit of the night. This latest one was off of the Red Sox phenomenal closer Jonathan Papelbon.
With Todd Helton coming up as the possible go-ahead run, Matt Holliday took his lead off of first base. Where is he going? He's too far off, isn't he? He was. Papelbon turned to first freezing Holliday like a deer in headlights as futilely tried to get back to the base. Jew baseball player Kevin Youkilis caught the pick off attempt and tagged him out.
It was one of the worst mistakes since the Iraq war. The only mistake that could be worse is if Troy Tulowitzki is voted NL Rookie of the Year over Ryan Braun.
