    Man, errors don't really tell you very much about how good somebody is at defense anyway. You could put my 40 year old bad knees that haven't been on a field in 20 years at first base for the Cards right now, and if by some miracle I went the rest of the year without making a single error, I guarantee you I would STILL be easily the worst defender of all time. I'd be missing scoops anybody could make, I'd almost never make a great play on a tough scoop, I'd be messing up plays on bunts, misplaying tricky foul balls, throwing to the wrong base, be in the wrong place on cutoffs sometimes, make poor throws on the front of DPs, slow to cover my base on tricky plays, on and on. It has to be stuff like that is what has these guys here saying this guy might be the worst defender EVER. For guys that watch him every day to be saying he might be the worst ever, it must be some version of all of the above- just kinda bad at everything, almost all the time. The organization wants to win, and apparently his great bat can't outweigh the innings his poor defense is routinely extending for them. That or it's some kind of personal thing we don't know about in addition to the poor defense.

    Eye reports were this guy was absolutely abysmal, not just bad. The worst. He'd have to be- nobody wants to take a bat like that out of the lineup. I've not seen him but it must be he routinely misses scoops a major leaguer makes every time, makes mental mistakes, etc- the kind of stuff that may not show up in some of those metrics. That's all I can figure.

    Jeez, I never watch the cards but i was thinking- isn't this guy pretty much the best bat on this team, or close to it? Man, he must really be awful.

    Haha i know, i was watching live and i knew it was gone before he even swung. Even slumping i could see that one was gonna get crushed before it was 3/4ths to the plate

    MLB network was going on and on like it was the longest HR ever hit. I don't think it was even that far. It was almost down the line. The corner is what, 330? It was coming almost straight down when it hit the stands. Probably like 440 or something. I mean it was a bomb obviously, but not a 500 foot HR or anything close

    First time i've ever seen this guy today. Loved what i saw. I missed the first walk. But the second AB he jumped all over and absolutely hammered a high 1-2 fastball one hopped into the corner, but just foul. Hammered. Then a very hard groundball right at bellinger on the next pitch. Next AB he hammered a lineout to center. Looked very explosive and strong from what i saw.

    That's why i asked, i guessed maybe they'd do it just for fan morale or something. I don't have time to stay right on top of all of it.

    Sounds like you know a lot. When do you figure it will happen?

    so does this mean moncada might get called up?

    I don't doubt it. Saw him beat out a basically routine grounder to short a couple weeks ago. A left-handed trout with unfortunate holes in his swing.

    Thankfully. But it looked like the glove almost got him heh. I only saw the slide once but it looked like the glove caught the ground in a different way and didn't slide over it like he expected, and it looked like it could have doubled his wrist up underneath him. Needs a little practice with it it looked like. I only saw it at full speed so i don't know. jeez the dive back into first wasn't too slick either. out of practice i guess http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/8878992/v1607693583/tblaa-trout-discusses-return-to-the-halos-lineup/?cid=ana
