Re: The dawn of Yorman Rodriguez?
I believe thorn and pepperjack are both correct which sort of goes back to my frustration. He may be one of those types of people that simply are not outwardly emotional. He is the only player of the wahoos that I have seen to virtually never show any passion or frustration, even when making the last out with bases loaded etc. Its almost like watching some guy punching the clock at a factory or something. It would appear that he could care less about winning any particular game. The flipside of the coin would be a Tucker Barnhart. He is full speed on every play and seems to take every game as if it is the 7th game of the world series. I am a fan of Yorman and a reds homer and would not want to denigrate in any way. But one last point that I never see mentioned. Regarding playing the field, at this point in time, Yorman is absolutely horrendous. Its brutal. Doesn't show up in the box score but he lets almost every ball bounce in front of him, often they roll past him, he misses cutoff men etc. He seems confused. With all that said, I believe he will indeed be an every day big leaguer, just mind boggling talent there. He'll make a play every now and then that just blows your mind, he has a smooth glide that is truly fun to watch.
