Kurijian: What if Alex Gordon had tried to score?

I know this play has been beaten to death, but Kurkjian does a nice job breaking the play down and getting quotes from all the players involved.

Juan Perez: “When I got to the ball, I tried to pick it up with my bare hand instead of using my glove. That was another mistake. Then I kind of kicked the ball and I thought, ‘Oh my God, he might score!’ I wasn’t sure how fast he really was, and I thought there was a chance he would score.”

Jirschele: “I know Gordo is going to get to third, and I’m thinking, ‘Holy mackerel, we might have a shot here.’”

Blanco: “But when he misplayed it, I thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to score!’ All I could think was, ‘Oh my God, throw it back in, please!!!’”


Bochy: “When Perez had some trouble with it, and I’m thinking, ‘Just get it back in [the infield]. Just get it back in.’”

Posey: “When we kicked it around a little, I thought, ‘I had better get back behind the plate because there might be a play at the plate.’”

Crawford: “When I saw Perez not picking up the ball, that’s when I had my, ‘Oh (——) moment.’ I thought, ‘Are we really going to have a play at the plate with two outs in the bottom of the ninth in the seventh game of the World Series?’”
