Re: Jay Bruce
Making a great throw for a put out can be just as exciting as hitting a home run...
When you're running up on a ball knowing that there's a chance you'll be making a throw on a close play your mind is more focused on the throw than fielding the ball cleanly... It's just a mental lapse that's easy to make under those conditions...
Much like a hitter swinging for the fences on a hanging breaking ball and not squaring it up.
