Louisville and TCU are engaged in a dogfight elimination game in the College World Series, with the Cardinals trailing by one run, 4-3. So it’s only natural that the Cards’ skipper should get severely worked up over a close bang-bang play on a steal attempt at second base.
That’s a REALY damn close play at the bag, and Louisville coach Dan McDonnell has a pretty strong argument in his favor.
In any case, his runner was out, and he was gone. TCU continues to hold a 4-3 lead in the top of the eighth.
After going long on the first two, I won’t bore you by over-explaining these obvious choices. Altuve has the track record of success, and he’s clearly the best second baseman in the AL this year. May he make this team for another 15 years.
Correa got some early competition from Francisco Lindor, and Andrelton Simmons’ offensive renaissance is tempting, but this wasn’t an especially difficult choice. I fully anticipate a brawl for this spot next year from Lindor, Xander Bogaerts, and Jean Segura, but no shortstop in the AL is currently mixing power, speed, and defense like Correa.
Dan McDonnell got his Cardinals to Omaha after winning the Louisville regional and super NFL Jerseys Cheap regional rounds, and the stakes are necessarily elevated in Omaha. So it was unsurprising to Cheap NFL Jerseys China see him completely lose his top over a close bang-bang out call at second against TCU.
