Right when you think you understand everything about the game-- you find out that someone can theoretically steal first! Your browser does not support iframes. In this case, Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura steals second and after Ryan Braun walks the two try a double steal. The Cubs play it perfectly though with a solid throw by Shawn Camp to pick off Segura, but he retreats back to second without getting tagged. That's where it gets funky. Braun had already made it there. Now in a case like this you would expect Braun to either retreat or both of them to just stand there while one gets tagged out. Since Segura was the lead runner when he touched the bag again Braun became out. So the play is over, right? Nope! Segura appears to be running to the dugout which does put him back into play. Whether he realized his goof and knew he had a way out is not known, but he does scamper to the bag towards the end. The Cubs were not looking to make a play on him so ...

Brewers' Segura steals second, then, well, first

MILWAUKEE -- A play that turned out to be harmless in the end left official scorers scrambling and players and coaches scratching their heads for an explanation Friday night at Miller Park.

Brewers 5, Cubs 4

Ryan Braun hit a three-run homer, and Jean Segura produced some bizarre baserunning in the Milwaukee Brewers' 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday night. Segura somehow wound up safe at first base after attempting to steal third, only to later be thrown out attempting to steal second base again. It didn't matter, though, because Braun went deep against Jeff Samardjiza...

Jean Segura Doesn't Care About Direction

There are a few certainties in life, guarantees if you will. The sun will rise in the east and, subsequently, set in the west. Your taxes will be due on April 14th every year. Ed McMahon will not be coming by my house anytime soon to deliver a giant check. When running the bases, you will not go back a base after advancing to the next one. These are guarantees in life that we can...

Fun with Baserunning

The Cubs did lose, but not before Herculean efforts by both teams to end up on the TOOTBLAN ledger for the day. In a rare display of baserunning awesome-plus-stupid, the Brewers’ Jean Segura stole second base successfully against Kevin Gregg and Welington Castillo.  It was an excellent throw by Castillo, but Segura had too good of a jump and was too fast.  Gregg then walked Ryan...

Historic turnaround ends Brewers' rough start

MILWAUKEE When the Brewers last left Milwaukee, the clubhouse was full of players and coaches searching for answers. The bullpen was exhausted and had just coughed up another game, a starting pitcher had to pinch hit with the tying run on third base in extra innings. The starting pitchers couldn't go deep in a game and the offense couldn't scratch runs across the plate...

Home cooking sparks hot week for Milwaukee Brewers

Sometimes is takes a thorough embarrassment for a team to get things turned around. I made the trek down to St. Louis a week ago to watch the Milwaukee Brewers in action, and I had to sit through an 8-0 thumping by the Cardinals. It was equal parts dominance by Adam Wainwright (a complete game shutout, 12 strikeouts, 3-for-3 batting) and ineptitude at the play (the three-four...
