I just saw the funniest play!

I'm going to describe this as best as I can.

Texas vs. Oakland----Tejada on 3rd, 1 out, 1st inning. There was a fly ball hit to left field. Blalock moved over to be the cut off man, and Arod covered 3rd base. Tejada was waiting to see if the ball was caught and tag up. Arod blocked Tejada's view 8-o ! Kept moving around so Tejada couldn't see the fly ball! Arod wasn't even a foot away from Tejada, it looked like they were playing basketball! Anyway, Tejada finally tagged and went to score, but was thrown out at home to end the inning :-b ! Tejada jumped all over the home plate umpire wanting an interference call, but Arod never touched Tejada so there was no interference to call. What a funny play. I really hope they show that on Sportscenter so everyone can get a good laugh. The whole play was very comical to watch. :*)

I remeber several weeks ago, during a Saturday FOX telecast of the Phillies game, Tim McCarver tried to claim that the 3rd baseman (Polanco) was trying to block the runner's view, but it looked in replays as if the blocking was inadvertent. I've never seen what you've described - that's funny.

No question about it, Arod was doing it on purpose :-D . They have shown penty of replays and keep pointing out that since Arod didn't touch Tejada, it's not against the rules. :-b Absolutely hilarious! :-b Watch Sportscenter tonight or tomorrow morning, I'll be surprised if they don't show it.

Funny, yes. But shouldn't the 3rd base coach have helped by yelling "Go!" to Tejada?
