What I don't understand is why they think guys at this level can't at least marginally hold runners on AND concentrate on the batter. These guys have been doing this since pre high school. Even if you just show a decent move from time to time it would be better than what they are doing. I think it will help to have someone not named Barajas behind the plate as well.

I wish that the running game was all that concerned me about Hurdle. I guess at least we're not turning Taillon and Cole over to Dusty Baker.

Yep, even with the lack of SP control on the running game, McKenry threw out 18% with his average arm. Just replacing Barajas with Martin will bring us back up to the lower end of the pack without changing anything.
