Lovable Baseball Lifer Don Zimmer Passes Away at 83
Laughing at Carlos Gomez Falling Down the Stairs Will Make You Feel Better About Yourself
Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez had an MVP-calibre season last year, playing gold glove defense while slugging .506 and accumulating a WAR of 8.9, which was tied for first in Major League Baseball. When it comes to the top center fielders in 2014, it’s probably Mike Trout, Andrew McCutchen, and Gomez, and not necessarily in that order. He is just a world class athlete.
That being said, even the best athletes struggle with the easy things sometimes. Gomez, for example, recently had a little difficulty navigating the stairs down into the visitors dugout at Minnesota’s Target Field.
Take a look:
I don’t know about you, but I enjoyed the looping commentary as much as Gomez’s fall. “Down the line…WHOOP!…oh my.” If you watch it over and over, it starts to sound lyrical.
In any case, I think I speak for all non-elite-athletes when I say haha Carlos Gomez! You slipped and fell and looked like a normal klutzy person for once.
