Well, it's not like he has a hose, really. It was an accurate throw, but it was a two-hopper.
Seconds after the world stopped making fun of Willie Bloomquist leading off in a playoff game, he singled. Then he stole second. In the span of two minutes, the Diamondbacks might have well had Rickey Henderson in his prime. And when Justin Upton hit a screaming line-drive single, it looked like Willie Bloomquist, leadoff hitter, was a genius move.
But Bloomquist isn't Rickey Henderson in his prime. When he rounded third, he kind of looked like what I'd imagine Henderson looking like on the bases today. That's not a terrible thing. I'm sure Rickey's still got something left. But it sure seemed like Bloomquist got a poor jump, or ran out of gas.
So to recap: Willie Bloomquist got on base, but he was cut down when Ryan Braun made a good defensive play. Seems fair, universe. Keep it up.
