I am going to give you credit for thinking. I am even going to go as far as saying it's too bad the play happened. But if anybody in the whole wide world could have the play back, it would be Zander ...

Just a flinch, and a settling to make sure he had the ball, then the throw. I know the announcers said he double pumped, but I didn't see it that way. HOW MUCH BETTER that he didn't throw wildly to first and cost a bigger problem.
