Random Video of the Day


I have a lot of random thoughts pop into my head during the day, but today I randomly thought about Eric Bruntlett‘s unassisted triple play in 2009. Bruntlett hit .202 with a .550 OPS in his Phillies career. He not only turned an unassisted triple play with Philadelphia, he also scored the winning runs in Games 3 and 5 of the 2008 World Series.

Nice memory. Wasn’t it early May last year when Wilson Valdez pitched his way to victory in the 19th inning?

i was at that game. it took most of the mets fans a few minutes to realize that the game was over.

Is Bruntlett available??? Is his awesome beard?

I seem to remember Bruntlett was put in for defensive purposes and made an error that lead to that inning where he turned the UATP.

Awesome play in Phillies history. A lot of the guys that fill-in never get their just recognition for what they do.

Bruntlett had his great moments. Unfortunately it was downhill for him after the WSC…
