My guess is that Kevin Kiermaier does know better.
No matter how appetizing third base might look, when you try to take that one on a combination of Willson Contreras and Javy Baez, you are asking for DOOM.
But my lead is so big, Kiermaier probably thought. My jump! My jump is absolutely enormous. Just look at it! You can’t even see me!

But Kevin. Kevin. It’s a Willson Contreras throw and a Javy Baez tag at *third base*. You’re done, man. You’re done:
Kiermaier’s reaction is priceless: what just happened?
Or maybe he was thinking: how could I have been so foolish? What hubris! Never again will I underestimate the impossible powers of Willson Contreras and Javy Baez.
