Not many people will challenge someone like Vlad or Ichiro so they won't have many assists. While someone like Manny who isn't known for his defense, teams will be more likely to run on him.


Though amusingly enough it's actually better to have the underrated OF than the stud, as you get more outs as a result. If a guy could find a way of being really good whilst continually getting a bad rep, he'd be an awesome attribute.

I think I get what he's saying. If you have to choose between two players of exactly equal defensive quality, you should take the guy with the worse reputation. I don't think he's saying he'd take Manny over Ichiro.

A leftfielder in Boston should have more assists than the normal leftfielder. That's the benefit of playing 40 feet behind third base. ;-)
