The Baltimore Orioles picked up three errors on one play in their game against Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg.

With Brendan Harris on first, B.J. Upton hit a grounder to first baseman Aubrey Huff who booted it (#1), then threw it past pitcher Adam Loewen (#2). Catcher Paul Bako chased down the errant throw and tried to catch Harris at the plate, but his throw was wild and Harris scored and Upton ended at third (#3).

Officially, the Griddle is opposed to the double error, but sometimes you have to give credit where credit is due.

Why are you opposed to the double error?

No one else thought this was a reference to Entourage?

For reasons which people have told me are lame. Basically, I find it unfair that an outfielder could drop a ball and it ends up as a three-base error when an infielder could kick a ball and then make a bad throw and get two errors. Or the same infielder could just throw the ball in the stand and there would be two bases.

I think it's all just one big play.

The usual reply to my complaint about the double error is "Shut up and sit down."

Tommy John would agree with you Bob, though, would he not?

I have no problem with the double error. An outfielder could drop a ball then make a bad throw and get a double error too. But then again, why argue over such a flawed stat. :)
