VIDEO: Matt Olson Somehow Records Error Insanely Weak Ground Ball From Max Kepler

Matt Olson is one of the better defensive first baseman in baseball, but even he is prone to some pretty bad mistakes. The A's first baseman made a pretty egregious gaffe during Friday night's contest, somehow misplaying a slow-roller from Max Kepler.

This is the MLB equivalent of dropping a wide open screen pass in football. There was simply no excuse for Olson not to come up with the ball, as it would have ended the inning for Oakland, stranding a pair of base runners.

Instead, one run scored on the play, and what Max Kepler thought was a weak groundout resulted in runners on the corners and the inning staying alive.
