WAAAAAAA! He wants 8 million!
WAAAAAA! He plays first base!
WAAAAAAAA! He allegedly doesn't play good defense!
Ask any Miami fan and they'll tell you Alonso has been the best defensive first basemen they've ever had.
Well not the best, that was Kevin Hart (1983-86), who never played an MLB game. The guy made a total of 5 errors his whole Hurricanes career at 1st base.
But Yonder is no slouch at 1st base. His bat is his best thing, but his glove is not awful by any means, and I think well above average for Div 1 college baseball players.
Another thing, he improved every year, which shows he is coachable, and on the upswing just learning what his talent is all about.
Trust me, you got a winner with this guy.
