I was recently tickled by the words Dave Dombrowski used when speaking on Johnny Peralta’s defensive prowess.
“Jhonny does a real solid job for us. We like him. Two outs in the ninth inning, 3-2 lead, man on third base, there’s not anybody in the league you’d prefer the ball hit to at shortstop than Jhonny Peralta.”
The key words in that last sentence being “hit to” as in, balls hit right at him since he has the range of Jabba the Hut at a singles bar.
Its cool though, I’m a fan of Jhonny Boy, since he’s now controversial.
