'Nick Punto, WHAT A BLUNDER!' (Yes, he did it again)
October 16, 2013 — 2:42pm
The Los Angeles Dodgers were trailing St. Louis by two runs in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series Tuesday night when Nick Punto bashed a double to the wall.
Then, this happened.
There are three views of the Punto pick-off, and the second and third are the best: The St. Louis radio announcers going to town on Punto's mistake and the great Vin Scully's lyrical call.
Of course, for Twins fans this was nothing new -- a mere flashback to the 2009 playoffs against the Yankees when Punto made a horrific base running mistake that still haunts many Twins fans. Listen to the end to hear John Gordon describe: "OH, MY! OH, MY! UNBELIEVABLE, UNBELIEVABLE BONEHEAD BASE RUNNING PLAY BY NICK PUNTO!"
The third camera angle also shows that Gordon wasn't overstating the case.
Have a great day!

After the outcry over a University of North Dakota committee voting to eliminate continuing to play without a nickname, the school's president said he'll reconsider adding that option when a vote is taken.
