Those guys didn't "hold him back", the Jays simply didn't view Edwin as a LF'er. Why, I don't know.
Does anybody here doubt that he has the speed, the athleticism, the arm or the glove to man LF effectively given practice/reps?
Anyway, I'm done with this as it's over and done with and serves no real purpose anyway. *sigh* I can't wait for ST to start and we can talk about REAL issues. :O)
Yes most of MLB and some folks here.
Look around the game, LF is full of crappy fielders and evidently he can't break into that group
