DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)During the Rangers/Astros telecast yesterday, Tom Grieve mentioned the common policy for corner infielders to "guard the line" against extra -base hits late in the game. This was done right after what would have been a routine groundball out instead scooted past Young and Andrus into left field for a base hit. My question is, given how sophisticated measuring defense has become, has there been a study to support or denounce this popular move?
(kenraty from Houston)
Not that I'm aware of, but I've often wondered if was a good play, since it stretches the defenders away from the middle of the field where the ball would seem more likely to be hit. I don't know that we have the data to do the study from the defensive point of view, but I bet we could see how many balls are typically pulled right down the line. My guess, strictly a guess, is that it's too small a number to pay for the other effects of the alignment. (Steven Goldman)
