    Kind of like the 3rd game against the Brewers when we had a chance to sweep. He sat Lopez and Dunn when the next day was a travel day. His bat is heating up...way up...Why would you even consider sitting him?
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    He caught it. Had he missed it, we wouldn't hear the end of it.

    Nah, we just would have said he doesn't cover much ground, which is the truth.

    I'm glad he caught it. Honestly, I wouldn't have said a word about it if others hadn't held it up as an example of good defense. IMO, most CFs get to that without nearly as much trouble as Jr. had there, therefore I don't consider it to be an exemplary defensive play.

    I can't argue that, but I think he, at times, covers more than some people want to give him credit for.

    Can't agree with you that most CF's get to it.

    What's really sad is that it's a Sunday afternoon in June, and there is no baseball on TV (at least here in Florida).

    No way to prove it either way, but I can tell you that if a kid ran like that in a track tryout he'd be put in with the distance runners and not the sprinters.
