Amezaga has done better

According to what some of the players are saying, Alfredo's outstanding player two nights ago was nothing out of the ordinary.

 

 

Alfredo Amezaga went so far as to call his highlight reel play Wednesday night "routine." Several teammates agreed it wasn't the best play they'd seen Amezaga make.

In the eighth inning, Michael Barrett hit a grounder deep into the hole. Amezaga ranged wide to his right, backhanded the ball and made an off-balance throw from about 3 yards behind the infield dirt.

 

Mike Jacobs stretched for it, but the ball would have made it on the fly regardless.

 

"I told him when he came in, 'That's a great play, but I've seen you make a better one,'" Jacobs said.

 

The play Jacobs alluded to occurred in the Mexican League. Amezaga has it on tape. Playing shortstop with a runner on first, Amezaga dove for a ball in the hole and before hitting the dirt made a no-look, backhand throw to force the runner at second.

 

You have got to be kidding me.

 

Amezaga may be the best fielding shortstop in the league. And he isn't half bad in center, or third, or second, or first....

 

Alfredo is a fielding machine.

The funny part of this is a LARGE number of you wanted him demoted back to the minors the whole first half of the season. You jokers okay with him staying on now or what? How 'bout next time you should maybe give a kid a chance before jabbering off at the mouth like that. Whaddya say?

I'm pretty sure very few wanted him demoted. Everyone here knows how great of a utility guy he is. Maybe they wanted him on the bench, but never in the minors.

Yeah, most people here wanted him back on the bench, and I good number still do, but noone wanted him sent to the minors. We all know that he is an incredible asset on the team.
