dland: I don't agree with the below average base runner statement, but I have been saying Matty should move to a corner OF position immediately to preserve his health and career.
Just because he is fast, doesnt mean he is a good baserunner. He makes baserunning blunders all the time. I saw him get picked off of second in a tie game in the 9th inning with 2 outs. He gets thrown out stealing far more than someone of his speed should.
Moving to a corner may hide his deficiencies to an extent. But he still gets horrible reads and takes very bad routes. He also makes far more mistakes out there than a "gold glover" should make.
He sure mashes the s*** out of the ball when healthy though.
And I hate the Dodgers, but I hope a Puig pimp job happens. The Braves are instigators, and then play the innocent victim card when their opponent fires back. I hope McCann is run over at home too.
