No, sorry. I disagree. Are you forgetting that moronic Tal's Hill in center that he had to climb and negotiate before reaching the wall. The only way a centerfielder gets that ball is if he's had quite a bit of experience in that ballpark. I agree with you that he seems to shy away from the wall, but that play was all about that freaking hill.
