Dee Gordon was caught stealing for just the 5th time this season during Monday’s Dodgers – Reds game. Gordon leads baseball with 36 stolen bases, 12 more than Jose Altuve of the Astros. Gordon tried to steal 2nd base with the Dodgers leading 6-2 in the 9th inning.
Gordon was thrown out because the Baseball Gods did not appreciate him trying to steal a base with such a large lead so late in a game – a clear violation of Baseball’s Unwritten Rules. To make matters worse, Gordon was caught on camera in the dugout NOT acting like he had been there before. He violently smashed a towel and then appeared to give someone the finger. Do the Dodgers have any players who aren’t a problem?
