DateQuestionAnswer
2008-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please comment on Luis Polonia's performance thus far in the Caribbean Series. Does the Atomic Ant seem past his prime as an outfielder?
(doncorrado from San Juan PR)
La Hormiga Atomica had a hard time in the field last night, misplaying Matt Tupman's double and not looking very good on a few other plays. His arm, even when he was at his best, was never very good. But if you watched the Dominican finals, he's actually done a better job in left than he did last year, when he was DHed in the CAribbean Series.

So long as he can hit, the Aguilas will find a place for him. (Derek Jacques)
