His errors were high when compared to his career numbers, but he did have a lot on his mind during the season. What he brings to the table as far as the total SS package, more than compensates for the number of errors that he made last season.
Defensive strength up the middle is of even more importance considering the team is week down the corners. Losing Gonzo at SS and replacing him with Keppinger seriously weakens this team defensively.
