Q: Who do you think was the best second baseman in Mets history?
A: I would have to say Edgardo Alfonzo even though he was a shooting star who fizzled out fairly quickly. I don’t think any Mets second baseman had the years that he had.
Q: Why do so many players fail to run through the first base bag and normally pull up when grounding out to infielders? I always felt that if the infield knew you hustled at ALL times they may rush a throw and you may get the base just for hustling.
A: You are correct. We are seeing more of this as the years pass. It is pretty glaring now. It started in my day and has deteriorated every since. Jose Reyes runs almost everything out and it is nice to see.
