How did I say something stupid? How many short stops do you see boot a ball and then just pick it up and put it in their back pocket? I don't think it's stupid to say a third baseman who boots the ball about as far from 1B as it can get would just pick it up and not risk the throw.
Just watched Jason Kipnis just do this very same thing against the Mariners. Gave up on it after the initial bobble. Cost the Indians a run with the next batter.
