Last night in the Tigers-White Sox game, Detroit second baseman Hernan Perez smacked a shot into the left-center gap.
As the ball rolled to the wall, center fielder Alejandro De Aza closed in on it, but at the last second left fielder Dayan Viciedo cut him off to make the play.
Unfortunately, that play never happened.
Instead, Viciedo fumbled the ball three times…
And then threw it to no one, allowing Perez to score. It was marked as a triple and an error, but it was really more like a double and then a demonstration of total indifference and incompetence.
And that’s how baseball is played in Chicago, everybody.
