I know that offensivly the tribe has looked attrocious, bad approaches, no patience, etc. for most of the season but, why is there not more discussion about therir defense?
I do not get to watch any games that aren't on national T.V. being in LA but, I do listen to Hegan and Hammy and am constantly infuriated by their defense. It seems they are in poor position before the ball is in play, they take poor routes to the ball and take forever to transfer and throw.
Obviously it starts at Third with the Chin, but Garko is below average at first, Peralta has little range and does not turn the DP well at all. Victor as good at the plate as he is still has problems controlling baserunners (which is a problem shared with pitching). RF and CF are solid but it remains to be seen if whomever they put in LF can pull their weight.
Ever since Wedge ball began the fundimentals, including their hitting approach, baserunning, and defense have been terrible and they don't seem to be getting better anytime soon.
Does anybody else feel this way or am I just crazy for thinking that they give up a run or two a night based on either inadiquate or downright poor defense?
