I like the attempt there, personally. He just timed it wrong. He shoulda done it when Kershaw had the ball between his legs and was tucking his shirt.

I thought he may have got the left hand in before the tag, but it was very close and hard to tell for sure one way or another.

Margot takes off a half second earlier while Kershaw was putting his hands up, he’s clearly safe.

Does the non glove hand count? I’ve never heard that before. That’s the difference in safe or out.

Jackie went feet first, straight into Yogi. Probably faster than head first. Margot might have been safe had he slid like Jackie. Maybe. Kershaw made a great play.
I heard that every time over the years Jackie’s wife, Rachel, ran into Yogi at some baseball function Yogi would immediately say “he was out!”, and she’d respond “no he wasn’t, he was safe!”

Stealing home is a symbolic play. If successful, it’s like robbing a home. But the Dodgers protected their home and kept control of the Rays, unlike the final play last night. Rays always pushing the envelope.

I would have let Kershaw finish the inning but I guess this is the problem with using starters like May as relievers--you have to bring them in when they're ready or they may lose it in the bullpen.

I firmly believe that's what happened to Pedro in Game 7 of 2004.
