I'm not convinced Felipe makes that play 97 out of 100 times. I think his overall lack of range greatly increases his chances of repeating what we saw last night.
Lack of range has nothing to do with what happend last night. He couldn't find the ball in his glove (yes that happens occasionally) and because of it he rushed his throw.
Felipe does make that play 97 times out of 100.
