Guillen has thrown it to third twice when it should have went to second...cost us two runs....Isn't he a veteran?
He's a ****** fielder who has no business playing the field ever. If Brad Thomas isn't sent down to Toledo to make room for Daniel Schlereth or Robbie Weinhardt soon, I'm going to do something drastic.
I'll agree that strikeouts are overrated to a point, but some people dismiss them completely. Dunn always seems to get a pass. But it's still burdensome, if you're a young player, I'd at least want you to be putting the ball in play, rather then K'ing every other at bat. Sure a douple play may come out of this...but, I'd rather see some kind of contact, Heyward was cutting at breaking balls in the dirt. Which would reflect poorly on his pitch recognition and knowledge of the strike zone. I would never be one to give heavy K guys a pass, just because it's better to K, then hit into a double play. Because one out isnt as bad as two. I just cant completely wrap my head around that one...the majority of these guys are still going to leave lots of guys on base, which is a problem as well.
