3rd base coach must have told Sappelt to go on contact. Worse yet Sappelt had his head down and no way he could see he was D.O.A. ----Too bad. Maybe he could have disobeyed orders. Water under the bridge. As for Rizzo.....maybe the same idea was in play from the 1st base coach. I wish I hear an explanation as it's soooooo easy to put it all on the baserunners.

Brandon Phillips was about 75 feet from home plate when he fielded that ball. And the "go on contact" order was on. That's so fucking stupid.
That's coming from Bell. It's a bang bang play. Either it works or it doesn't. Putting pressure on the D works. If it was the Cubs in the field man would have scored.
