Yankees Third Baseman Sets Best Basketball Pick In Baseball History

The 2013 Yankees, everyone.

In the top of the third inning of last night’s Yankees/Rangers game, Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus laid down a sacrifice bunt, which was quickly scooped up by Andy Pettitte.

But then third baseman Jayson Nix was all, “NOT IN MY HOUSE!” and took out Pettitte’s throw with an illegal moving pick, allowing Andrus to safely reach first base, while simultaneously exploding Pettitte’s shoulder.

Just kidding. Pettitte was not injured on the play, but based on what’s happened with the Yankees so far this season, he’ll be on the disabled list soon enough.
