Astros' Jonathan Villar Slide Fail May Be The Signature Play Of MLB's Worst 2013 Team (VIDEO/GIF)

Houston Astros shortstop Jonathan Villar produced a baserunning blunder that may be capable of unseating the buttfumble atop any list of recent sports bloopers.

Just as Mark Sanchez's infamous turnover came to represent the ineptitude of the 2012 New York Jets, this baserunning gaffe could come to sum up the wayward travels of the 2013 Houston Astros.

To the surprise of no one, a GIF of the moment was produced before Villar could even be instructed not to slide headfirst next time.
