Re: CF Defense, is it that important?
The Yankees/Bluejays game is on mlb.tv and they said during pregame that the Yanks are planning to move Granderson to left field presumably to allow Gardner to take over in CF. They seem interested in CF defense.
BTW, there is zero controversy- Ichiro will go into the hall as a Mariner. In fact he should already be inducted. There is no point to wait. That said, he looks natural in pinstripes. Youkilis in pinstripes on the other hand? He looks like Benedict Arnold without the powdered wig.
Update: The Granderson experiment lasted less than an inning. He got beaned and is out 10 weeks with a fractured bone.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
