Alright, so just because my last post was praising Cano doesn't mean that I don't fully appreciate our current second baseman, the one and only Dee Gordon. Plenty of pencil pushing, Seattle sports writers wanna talk about Gordon's performance last year. These nerds simply look at a list of stats and come to some erroneous conclusions and attempt to speak as if they are some kinda authority on the topic, while ignoring a couple of glaringly obvious points. If you made it as far as coach pitch in your baseball career, you know that second base and center field are two completely different positions. Not only are they totally different, but they are also two of the most skilled positions in baseball. So asking a player to switch back and forth between them at the highest level of the game is a tall order. For you nerds out there, I'll try to put it into terms you understand, it would be like your boss telling you, "Alright, I need you to switch from coding this way to coding in this completely different way." Surely, you would all go to whatever subreddit you congregate at and bemoan your existence. Did Gordon complain? Of course not, he went out and played hard every game, despite having a foot injury that hampered one of his most valuable tools, his speed. Now I know every time y'all get the sniffles ya run to the doctor and demand antibiotics while taking like two weeks off work. Luckily for Mariners fans Dee is about 1,000,000 times harder than the average Seattle sad boy and will undoubtedly be an all-star this year.
