According to ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian — who we have always adored here at The Big Lead — Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday has perhaps the strongest pair of hands in all of Major League Baseball. Good to know.
But what exactly happens when one gushes over the apparent treasure that is an outfielder’s brawny hands? And for 23 seconds, no less? Five seconds of extremely awkward silence.
Credit for the strange assist goes to St. Louis outfielder Peter Bourjos.
