Toby Hyde responds to some badmouthing of Wilmer Flores: First the news that Flores isn’t going to play shortstop in the Major Leagues: not news. And yes, he could play SS on your son’s little league team, and he would be damn good at it. The quote sounds good, it’s entertaining, but it’s exaggerated for emphasis. (Duh.) The news that Flores isn’t really fast: also not news. The news here, and really the only news here, is that this scout doesn’t like Flores’ ability to hit. This is interesting, and deserves further elucidation.
