    He's the best outfielder we have without question.
    Even one of the 3 Little Pigs was the skinniest.

    Most CF's would get to that ball without having to make an over the shoulder basket catch. Griffey has a great glove, I don't question that. I question his ability to get to balls. He might be the slowest CF in the game.

    Everytime you look Claussen has a full count on somebody.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    that may be true but he is not a good CF these days. He is WAY to slow.

    That is because he is pitching scared. He quits going after them after getting ahead.

    Claussen has to learn to go after weaker hitters. He lost this inning when he went full on Davis. When up 1-2 against the pitcher, you have to put him away. Instead, he went full against him and had to throw a strike. Davis then hit the ball well and got a triple.

    Agree Griffey should have got there, but Claussen is hurting himself by nibbling (or just lacking control).

    I know you can't compare the two situations, but if Casey had been satisfied with first after he drove Olmedo in...you just wonder why this team is so horrible (with a couple of exceptions) on the basepaths.
