After watching Bruce get to pretty bad jumps/reads on balls last night, I was thinking about whether or not we really benefit from having a defensive replacement for Griffey. I am aware Bruce has much more speed in the tank than Griffey these days, but Griffey almost always get the right read on a ball right away off the bat which makes up for some of his lost speed, and is something that will take Bruce a few years in right field to do. What are your thoughts, opinions.
I myself am really undecided, I don't pay attention to all the sabermetric defensive stats for the most part. And just from watching, well I haven't paid close enough attention to Bruce's jumps, reads, etc. when he has played right field.
