Aaron Hill Steals Home (And My Heart)

bluejaysExactly one week ago today I asked a simple question. Where Have You Gone, Dave Collins?. I was missing small ball, the days when players actually stole bases and didn't just play for the three run homer.

In the seventh inning last night, with the Jays and Yanks tied, Aaron Hill stole home off of Andy Pettitte. That exciting piece of small ball won us the ball game.

The straight steal of home was the Jays' first since Raul Mondesi accomplished the feat on April 17, 2001. It was far more exciting than any home run we've hit this season, and it verifies something I've suspected for quite some time. Brian Butterfield reads this blog.

When I heard about this, i thought, "Wow, Gibbons is going to get in trouble with J.P. when he hears about this."

Didn't Alomar steal or attempt to steal home in a playoff game once?

Do you get a "Precondition Failed" error?

Yeah, that's it.

Ok, here's the deal with that.

My buddy is hosting this site for free. He's got other Movable Type-powered sites on this server too. He's got a list of keywords that, if used, won't even let the comment be submitted. You can blame the comment spammers for this...

You must have used one of those forbidden words.

I guess one of his forbidden words must have been "Sens" or "Ottawa" knowing you guys. ;)
