I dont really blame EE for his throw yesterday.
It should have been no surprise to Brandon phillips that we might be able to turn a double play.
If we were inside the club house i can gauruntee you BP announced taking the blame for that play.
If you watch BP hesitated for a few moments when the ball was hit. Then realized (#*#* i need to be on second.) He was late getting to the bag.
EE still could have made a better throw than he did. But the majority of the blame should probably go on BP's side.
