I would tell you that Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado’s amazing throw to first base to throw out Luis Cruz reminded me of Brooks Robinson, but I would be lying, since I never saw Brooks Robinson play. That’s what all the old guys on Twitter were saying. Nevertheless, it is a spectactular play: Yes, had Machado fielded it cleanly it would have been a normal groundout, but the bobble gave it some extra flair. That is one strong arm to throw a guy out fall off his backfoot. It was a dart of a throw. Impressive. The Orioles beat the Yankees 2-1 after Adam Jones hit a two-run home run off Mariano Rivera in the ninth. Pick you jaw up off your desk.
