    Revere's right arm strikes again. That's a hard throw for anyone but Revere has a zero chance to make it.

    Ouch. Dozier. Ouch.

    He was staring down Rios while the ball rolled between his legs.

    And now a hit that Morneau fields easily if he's not holding on the runner.

    And it all stems from Revere's awful arm. Nope, that arm doesn't factor into games at all.

    An appearance from the Gold Glove Caliber Second Baseman is fitting.

    Of course, if he was playing LF, Rios wouldn't have got on base at all.

    Another reason why this entire situation is baffling. While I doubt the difference is huge, left field has to be more active than right. More hitters are right-handed. Hitters tend to pull the ball when they make good contact. Revere's arm strength isn't as much of an issue in left.

    There are a half dozen reasons for Revere to play in left and no good reasons for him to play in right.

    Twins Baseball™.

    When does the Brian Dozier experience end. I've yet to have a moment that leads be to believe he can hack it on offense or defense.

    Hawk also thought Gomez was the best outfield since Yaz.

    We checked this at BYTO, remember? RF gets more balls than LF, consistently. CF gets the most.

    For the record, Revere doesn't catch that double by Rios, either.

    Maybe its just my way of thinking but being able to get "a groundball at will" is about as counterproductive as a sacrifice bunt (in most situations)

    I remember discussing it but I missed any posts with data stating it one way or the other. Do you remember where someone found the info?
