I've heard Jerry Narron recently talk about Wily Mo Pena and how hard he's going to work on his defense. Well, I have a specific question for Narron that I wish our scribes would ask.
Will the coaches demand that Pena catch the ball with two hands whenever possible? I sure would. I'd fine the guy for every nonchalant, one handed catch he makes until he shows a proficiency in catching the baseball. He's forced the Reds to treat him like a little leaguer and coach the fundamentals to him. If I see him one handing catches again in 2006 it will tell me two things:
1) He's not intent on improving his defense
2) The Reds are not serious about insisting on improved defense from him
