So Joaquin Arias, shown here on card number 4 of the 2007 Topps '52 set, gets his first hit of the season tonight off Seattle starter Jason Vargas.

As the next batter, Elvis Andrus, approaches the plate the radio announcers start talking about how Jason Vargas has a great pickoff move. Just as they remark that Joaquin is not a very good baserunner and had better be careful he gets picked off.

Vargas hadn't even thrown home yet. Guess the announcers knew what they were talking about. I wasn't impressed. With Arias that is. The announcers were spot on.
