I have been impressed with the defensive positioning the past few games. The other day against the DRays, there was a shot that I was sure was headed for the RCF gap and Maggs had to move like 5 steps to get it. Same thing happened the next day.

That is generally the job of the bench coach and I remember thinking that maybe Haaarold wasn't such a bad choice after all.

One small bit of annecdotal evidence in favor of Haaarold.

That's interesting. Hawk made a point in Saturday's game in the 9th of mentioning how the Sox outfielders were positioned too deep for having such a big lead. I think DJ basically mentioned the Sox outfielders were playing awfully deep, and Hawk replied with...

:hawk

"Yeah. TOO deep."

Maggs plays on the frickin warning track. My guess is that it's because none of them are stellar going back on a ball and they'd rather give up a few singes instead of extra base hits in the gaps.

But if you have the lead, don't the opposing players usually aim for the fences? That's what I thought.

With a 5 run lead in the ninth, you are trying to keep everything in front of you to prevent something getting going.

I didn't see the plays in question, or I didn't notice and I definitely didn't hear Hawk.

I did notice earlier in the game Maggs well positioned to cut off a couple of gappers.

I've heard quite a few people say before he got hurt that Harold was an excellent rightfielder with a good arm. Even though he could no longer play the position, he probably still had a good idea how they should be positioned. This could be another positive for this club, and the more, the better. :smile:

Exactly, playing by the book, correct thing to do.
