The LeCroy thing

Posted at 9:54 AM on May 26, 2006 by Ben Tesch

The talk of the town last night was the strange situation of the Nationals and Matt LeCroy. LeCroy was catching, since their normal starter is on the DL, and their backup got a concussion the day before, and the Astros took advantage. They proceeded to steal seven bases, which included two throwing attempts by Matt that went well into the outfield. Nats manager Frank Robinson then did the quite rare move of pulling the catcher in the middle of the inning. All I can say is it was all very strange, coupled with the emotional post-game interviews, and the fact that the whole ordeal was so widely broadcast that made the news ticker and was the subject of much talk on the sports shows. Very surreal.
