Wickman rolls & waddles to his 40th save

Great Tribe win tonight over the A’s, 5-3. A crucial victory in a crucial series.

But that’s not the best part. The best part came on a double play in the 9th, with Bob Wickman covering first, during which he fell over at first base, literally just fell over as he was running to the base, rolled around on the ground like Tommy Lasorda at the All-Star Game, rolls into the base runner, thereby keeping him from touching first base, and knocking him over. The ball goes flying. Wickman gets up, runs to the ball. The hitter is writhing in pain down the baseline after getting rolled by Bob Wickman, and Wickman waddles himself to first base to collect the second out of the double play. Greatness.

Wickman haters, you gotta admit. That was one of the funniest things all year.
