I know the "Giambino" hit a HR the other night and his bat has been looking better the last couple of games, but his fielding is still atrocious. There was a "smash" hit towards him last night that he felt the need to dive (read: fall over) for.
The analysis was that he couldn't reach it because he was holding the runner on first, which is ridiculous. The ball was about 10 inches to his right. I know he's fat, old, and immobile, but maybe he needs to stretch a bit more if he can't reach 10 inches to either side. Ridiculous.
