Three Totally Logical Explanations for Rougned Odor’s Slip and Fall

In many ways, yesterday’s 3-1 win by the Toronto Blue Jays was reminiscent of their 6-3 victory over the Texas Rangers in Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS.

Jose Bautista hit a mammoth go-ahead home run, Elvis Andrus made not one, but two blunders on the field, and Rougned Odor misplayed a ball.

Not only that, Odor provided one of the game’s most memorable moments after he tripped and fell as he stumbled out of the batter’s box. He may have just tripped over his feet, or perhaps there were three simple explanations for Odor’s trip and fall? Did he have a little help from #19?


Bautista Went Bananas on ODOR

Whenever I see someone slip and fall, instinctively my mind goes to Mario Kart and figuring out whoever threw that damn banana. It turns out Jose Bautista got the outfield assist here.

Super Joey Kart

Along the same Mario-themed lines, GIF-master Andy @_rallycap came up with this clever interpretation of Odor’s fall.

It was the Bat FLip All ALong

And lastly, courtesy of @KPRatherWalk, Odor may have tripped on something leftover from Game 5 of the ALDS.

Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

    I saw this hilarious blunder in Toronto, at the game! Seeing Stinky, I mean Odor, throw a fit like a three year old was just the icing on the cake. The entire stadium just busted out laughing.
