Really? He did it again? Yes, Yoenis Cespedes made a spectacular throw from the outfield for the second consecutive game, nailing another Angels runner on the basepaths Wednesday night. (Maybe he was upset that he didn’t have two plays on our list of 10 best outfield throws.)
You might think the Angels would know better than to test Cespedes’ arm after he gunned down Howie Kendrick at home plate on Tuesday, but that lesson apparently didn’t take. At least not with Albert Pujols (and maybe third base coach Gary DiSarcina), who was thrown out trying to stretch a double into a triple.
But Cespedes might also have a talent for getting the Angels to run into outs by initially bungling plays in the outfield before erasing his mistake with his rocket arm. What? The ball kicked away from me? No one remembers because I just threw you out, sir.
