You might think this clip came straight out of a Gas-House Gorillas-Tea Totallers game, but it only looks like a cartoon. Yu Darvish so thoroughly confounded Trevor Plouffe with this lazy curveball that he began his swing on Thursday.
Trevor Plouffe made a damn good play here, at least initially. He dived to his left to stop Juan Lagares's sharply hit grounder, then ... nothing. Plouffe's glove refused to give him the ball.
