Trying to steal second base in the 9th inning when you represent the tying run isn’t the worst idea in the world, especially if you get a nice jump and the catcher doesn’t get off a great throw.
The problem? If Javy Baez is at the base, it might not matter what kind of jump you get or what kind of throw comes at you. Because Baez will no-look tag you OUT:
