Bruce Miles had a question posed to him the other day that I thought I’d post for discussion:
Q. With Alfonso Soriano in left and Milton Bradley in right, how crucial will the play of Reed Johnson and Kosuke Fukudome be?
Miles: It’ll be especially crucial, with Johnson and Fukudome having to cover a lot of ground.
The Cubs have talked up Bradley’s defensive ability. He played on only 20 games in the outfield last year for Texas, so we’ll have to wait and see. – (Source
So I ask. Do you put as much stock in defense as some do? I tend to be one that leans toward the importance of defense in the IF and C position and that the OF defense, as long as you don’t have Adam Dunn out there, should be satisfactory. What are your thoughts?
