Last night, the Kansas City Royals held a 4-0 lead over the AL East leading Boston Red Sox going into the seventh inning. The Royals ended up losing, 5-4, which isn't surprising considering they're currently the worst team in the league.
What is surprising, and highlights their mediocrity, is that they allowed David Ortiz to steal second base. "Big Papi" is definitely not known for his base stealing, or even base running skills, but he racked up his sixth career steal last night.
Oh the joys of being a Royals fan.
I heard Ortiz even slowed down midway between first and second, and was still able to steal the base. Any truth? YouTube footage?
