As most of you know, Yadi signed an extension this afternoon. I am happy for him and realize that he is one of the top defenders behind the plate in MLB. But I wonder if we over value defense and what it means to wins. Is Yadi’s defense really more valuable than Bryan Anderson’s bat? And yes, I know that Anderson is still more than a year away.
I had a chance to talk to Anderson about the Yadi’s deal. He says he is happy for him and says maybe he (Anderson) should start taking some flyballs and grounders.
I hope you guys clicked on my links to my Winter Warm Up coverage.
