“He hasn’t been in a prolonged slump,” Farrell said. “He’s taken a similar approach whether it’s against a lefthander or righthander. He’s hit lefthanders well. He handled Mike Dunn with the Marlins and put some good swings on pitches.”
While Bradley is still projected as a center fielder, “he’s gonna play any one of three positions well,” Farrell said.
Bradley’s error was under pretty tough circumstances.
“I wanted to stay shallow because anything over my head will hit the fence or go over,” he said.
“I took the approach I wanted to take away base hits. I had seen earlier that anything high pretty much is gonna be an outfielder’s ball. I was looking at the ball whole time. It was so windy I didn’t see Will waving his hand. My fault, I should have made the play, bad on my part.”
It should now be a slam dunk. No need to worry about arbitration clocks and all that stuff.
The best players should play.
Bradley is one of them.
