It was worse than the play last night that ended the game which I thought was a hit because he would of had a hard time throwing out Ludwick that deep in the hole.
It should not have been "cought," as he had to make a diving stab just to try to get in front of the ball. It was deep in the hole and took an in-between hop as he was laying out for it. It wasn't 50/50. Very few shortstops in the league even get in front of that ball. Barmes actually has decent range. That's the only reason he's still playing these days.
