I've made an alternate guide to enjoying the latest Jean Segura moment* (GIFs provided by Grant Brisbee) for members of various Jean Segura fan clubs.
*Here's the definition of Macroscopic Scale - keep this definition in mind as you go through this.
To me, it seems as though Jean Segura may or may not have been on the macroscopic scale. Or, maybe the umpire was not on it. If they were on it, I hope this is still of value to some people.

- Here are 3 separate reactions to the Jean Segura moment. Reaction 3 is mine, and I've chosen to use a soundtrack in place of words.

WHAT'S ON SECOND?
Your browser does not support iframes.A wacky series of events unfolded Friday evening at Miller Park.It all began in the bottom of the eighth when Milwaukee's Jean Segura swiped second base. That's no big deal by itself. Players steal bases every night in Major League Baseball.One pitch later, teammate Ryan Braun draws a walk to put runners on first and second, with no...
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.
It was easy for the Brewers to laugh about it afterward because they held on to beat the Cubs, 5-4, for their fifth straight win, but they ran themselves out of a promising eighth inning in the...
Right when you think you understand everything about the game-- you find out that someone can theoretically steal first!

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...
I watched this a few times and am still a bit confused. The long and short of it is that Jean Segura actually stole first base on Friday night. If you don’t believe me check out the insane video and even more insane play-by-play call made by the good folks at Yahoo!.
Thanks to the Big League Stew we have one of the most complex step-by-step rundowns of a rundown:
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers optioned right-hander Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville following Thursday's 7-2 victory over San Francisco, opening the door for right-hander Hiram Burgos to come up from Nashville to make his big-league debut in a Saturday start against the Cubs.
Burgos, 25, was Milwaukee's minor league pitcher of the year in 2012, posting a 10-4 record...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Mark Rogers will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Huntsville as he tries to work his way back from a right shoulder injury.
Placed on the disabled list March 26 with right shoulder instability, Rogers had the Brewers puzzled about his drop in velocity during spring training. Usually hitting the mid-90s with his fastball...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers infielder Taylor Green is in Milwaukee on Thursday to have his injured hip examined by team physician Dr. William Raasch.
The 26-year-old injured the hip during spring training and was left behind at the team's minor league facility to rehab in extended spring training. Right when he was about to embark on a minor league rehab assignment, Green...
MILWAUKEE -- His manager and his catcher both noticed it. There was something different about Yovani Gallardo on Thursday afternoon.
Pitching for the first time since he was charged with drunken driving early Tuesday morning, Gallardo was sharper than he's been all season. The right-hander not only picked up his first win of 2013 by allowing just one run in six innings, but he...
MILWAUKEE -- At this time last year, Hiram Burgos was preparing to make his next scheduled start for Brevard County in Single-A. Now he's one day away from making his Major League debut.
Burgos was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to start for the Brewers against the Cubs on Saturday at Miller Park.
"Right now I just feel really proud, and I'm happy and excited to...
MILWAUKEE -- Does an NFL team panic if it loses its first game?
Ten games in a Major League Baseball season equate to nearly one full NFL game, or in other words, a small chunk of a very long season.
Though the Brewers were 2-8 through their first 10 games of 2013, their season wasn't doomed to the basement of the division. Milwaukee has responded with three straight wins to...
MILWAUKEE -- In sports, everyone loves to recognize the first time something happens.
Brewers rookie right-hander Hiram Burgos made his Major League debut Saturday night at Miller Park, so his fellow starting pitchers decided to have a little fun with his "firsts" after the game.
Placed on Burgos' chair was "the first towel sat on," while baseballs signed...
MLB News: The Milwaukee Brewers optioned pitcher Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday after struggling in his only start of the season. Flawed with mechanical issues, the Brewers are hoping that he can go down to Nashville and right himself.
Fantasy Ramifications: Fiers, even if he makes it back to the big leagues, is no more than a back end starter in a bad rotation. Leave...
Yovani Gallardo homered and struck out six in his first start since being arrested on a drunken driving charge, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat San Francisco 7-2 Thursday for a three-game sweep.
Gallardo (1-1) was arrested early Tuesday morning. The right-hander allowed five hits, one walk and one earned run in six innings.
Milwaukee took all three games from the World Series champion...
After sweeping the defending champions, the Milwaukee Brewers appear to be playing with some confidence heading into their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs.
With their early struggles behind them, the surging Brewers look for their 16th win in 18 home games against the Cubs and fifth straight victory overall Friday night.
Riding a club-record scoreless streak and three...
