At Long Last, Video Of One Of The Most Ridiculous And Unforgettable Plays In Nats History (WaPo)

This is pure awesomeness!! MLBAM swept away the cobwebs and wrestled out of their archives this video gem for which Nats fans have been clamoring for centuries.

Friday marks the 10th anniversary of one of the most unforgettable plays in early Nationals history, a moment right up there with Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn wearing “Natinals” jerseys for a home game in 2009. If you haven’t seen the play, there’s a decent chance you’ve heard it.

What’s your “favorite” bone-headed play? Or your favorite sandwich?

Victor Martinez: Worst. Baserunner. Ever?

Only eight full-time players—a combination of designated hitters, catchers and the elderly—advanced less than 20 percent of the time, including David Ortiz, whose 16 percent mark was second lowest in baseball.

The one man Ortiz outran: Victor Martinez, a one-man combination of DH, catcher and, at age 38, elderly. He took the extra base 7 percent of the time. If we switch to Baseball Prospectus and look at the all-time leaderboard in its baserunning runs metric, Martinez’s 2016 season tied for the worst baserunning performance in history at -9.6

a fun article taking a look at baserunning.
