Area Codes Game 14: Monday Morning Pepper

By
August 9, 2010

Outfielder Charles Tilson was the player people came back to see. In his first at-bat he was hit by a pitch and then out on a double play. The infielder who turned that double play, Drew Stankiewicz, is growing on me. I’ve watched the infields and more importantly – the pre-game pepper – and the guy has soft, fast, and instinctive hands. These little things play huge in games but get lost in the radar gun, long-ball world. Playability matters when you’re playing games where scores count and getting paid to do so. To shore up the case, he had another hit, what I term solid slap, to left. It works just fine for the player he is.  The guy plays the infield as smooth as anyone you will find.
