Ian Kinsler is generally a master on the bases. 160 stolen bases in his career and only 33 caught stealing. He even has a +39.4 value as a baserunner throughout his career, according to Fangraphs. But this season his baserunning value is -0.9. I’m guessing all of the negative points came on the embarrassing slide seen above. After singling to lead off the bottom of the first for the Rangers on Thursday against the Tigers, Kinsler went to third on a hit by Elvis Andrus. For some reason he totally screwed up on his head-first slide into third base and completely ate it. Nothing but dirt all in the face. His teammates in the dugout were laughing and loving it, and even Kinsler was smiling afterward and seemed to be a good sport. Here are a few more awesome photos of it: By popular demand, #Rangers Ian Kinsler’s slide into 3rd this evening… #DoNotTryThisAtHome twitter.com/KellysPics/sta… — Kelly Gavin (@KellysPics) May 17, 2013 H/T Outside the Boxscore
