    I've noticed that a lot of west coast teams don't have much TV coverage. It might be the lack of Fox Sports stations in the west, i don't know. I fault FSN-Ohio for this problem, but it was nice to listen to the home crew call a whole ballgame for a change.

Sosa was just one of many terrible young right-fielders and he matured into a tolerable fielder. In CF, WMP seems to have much more success judging the ball off the bat. Problem is, WMP is young and getting very little experience sitting the pine.

    I agree that Peņa's best defensive position (by far) is CF. I seem to remember that he made several great plays when he was playing CF regularly last year. When I was younger, I played in the outfield sometimes. (1B was my best position, but we also had a player who only played 1B, so I also played in the OF on occasion.) I played all three outfield positions, but I liked CF the best of the three, because I could get the truest read on fly balls (no hook or slice). If only I didn't lack the speed to play there...but I digress. I think that WMP is/can be much better in CF than he is in LF or RF because he also gets better reads there. And unlike myself, he does have the speed to play there! But as others have said, regular playing time is essential to his growth.

    And Davey C is still holding off Gordy Coleman, whose HR drought continues.
