I get your point, but the distinction is probably that the fly ball usually gets the job done and the defene can't do anything to counter whether it is hit deep enough. A grounder to second is really at the defense' discretion. The IF could play-in and prevent it from being successful.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
