11th Inning defense. Why was Alberto out?

In the 11th inning, Sisco moved from DH to C, Holaday from C to 1B, Nunez to 3rd and Ruiz to 2nd.

Was Alberto injured?  What did I miss?

I have no idea, but Maybe because of his ridiculous error that cost cost two unearned runs?

If the Jays had tied the game, the O's would have had to bat their pitcher in the 12th.  All the hitters were used up.  That was only his 2nd error all year.  Stupid error, I'll agree, but...

He’s generally a very good defender.

Yes and I was surprised. But so what? Adam said,”sometimes you suck.” And I really took that to heart. But I would still yank him from the game. You don’t let such a gaffe pass.

if he hadn’t made that error, Akin has a clean outing and we don’t go extra innings, instead getting a shutout.

I did not see the play, but it was a physical error, correct?    Six innings earlier?  Nobody who’s generally a good fielder gets pulled from a game in extra innings for that.

Actually the new defensive alignment was weaker than the previous. My suggestion was actually made in jest,Because I have no idea why it was done, but looking over the new lineup, it is inexplicable.

Yes I agree, especially because the new alignment was considerably weaker defensively. Still, you Gotta do something when someone does something so egregious. They’re not playing for minimum-wage. You’re allowed to expect more from them.

Was wondering this myself. One of my biggest problems with the Scott Garceau and the analysts this year is a failure to recognize these kinds of situations. I understand that they aren't at the games and the situation is challenging but they are seeing and being given more information than the viewer is and yet we notice things that they don't.

I have no idea why Hyde thought Nunez at 3rd was somehow better than keeping Alberto at 2nd.  Sometimes he makes real headscratcher moves.

Obviously there has to be some sort of injury to Alberto.  The move wasn't made for defensive purposes.  We got worse at 3B and C, and put our pitcher in the batting order.  Was Hyde asked about on the post game ZC?

Alberto had a ground ball to him in short RF. Akin was pulled  prior to that with runners on 2nd and 3rd with 2 outs in a 1-0 game. All  Alberto had to do was throw a strike to 1B to end the inning and hold the 1-0 lead. He like a lot of our infielders throws a 3/4 arm toss that sailed about 2 feet over Nunez's head. Ridiculous ! The players looked at him like WTF. 2 errors ?  He has screwed up before at 2B. I guess they didn't give him errors..

    • I like Hays in left and Mullins is center.  Hays does not seem to dive as much in left.  Keeping Hays healthy is key and if playing left keeps him on the field that is what I would do.

    • Interesting historical fact... That clip in the Blues Traveler above... the two steam engines slamming into each other at high speed. That really happened. Caused a real tragedy. The Union Pacific RR or Southern Pacific of the 1870's-1880's, I forget... They were going to decommission/scrap two old Engines. So they figured... they might as well make some money off it. So they SOLD TICKETS! Fired up the two steam engines on the day, and ran them headlong into each other at full speed. They miscalculated... when the trains hit each other, boilers at full steam 212+ degrees... they sprayed rivets and metal fragments for MILES. ALL over the assembled crowd who BOUGHT TICKETS. Don't remember if anyone died but many, many bloody injuries. A tragic scene. All for the cause of a bunch of RR whores trying to squeeze every dollar out of every situation they faced. Capitalism at it's BEST!
