With A Jimmmitude: Alec Bohm and Miles Bridges

Bohm still hasn’t touched home

Nothing like some controversy on Sunday Night Baseball. With the game tied in the Top of the 9th, Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm tried to tag up and score while testing the arm of Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna. Watching the play in real time it did not seem like Bohm made it, yet he was called safe. When watching the replays it was abundantly clear that Bohm was out. The problem is that the MLB review system is broke right now, botching yet another call.

The fact of the matter is that the Atlanta Braves got screwed here. Alec Bohm never touched home. Bohm’s foot went over home and missed the plate, even his spin move he did afterward did not provide an actual touching of home.

I do not have a dog in this fight. I am not a Phillies or Braves fan, for what it is worth I do have Bohm on one of my fantasy teams so the run scored did help me, but it shouldn’t have.

Who knows what happens if the review process works correctly and Alec Bohm is determined to be out. Maybe the Braves still lose, but at least it would have been in legitimate fashion (hopefully). The fact of the matter is that the score should have been the same after this play, 6-6.

Bridges with the dunk of the year

How about some fun to get Monday started after the above nonsense from Major League Baseball. Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges came through with the dunk of the year with an absolute posterization of Atlanta’s Clint Capela. This tenacious dunk from Bridges is the best dunk I’ve seen in a long time. The mix of aggressiveness and the degree of difficulty to complete this dunk is nothing short of impressive.

The Hornets did not end up winning this game, but I am all in on more explosive dunks from Miles Bridges. Especially if they come with a throwback posterization of another player.
