Watching the NLCS game...Rafael Belliard was thrown out trying to go from first to third on a single to left. McCarver said that runners who are thrown out on the bases often make the "best" choice.

No, I don't get it, either. McCarver's explanation was that Anthony Reyes was up next, and he would "bunt him over anyway."

Soooo...Belliard is thrown out at third base, on a single to not-particularly-deep left field. That left the Cards with a runner on first with two outs and the pitcher at the plate. That's better than runners on first and second with one out and the pitcher at the plate?

I do not think the word "best" means what McCarver thinks it means...
