No speed threat either.
Funny, our star Pedro Alvarez, even though the NL HR leader at 31, really stinks otherwise. .300 OBP and strikes out like mad. 155 times so far and over 500+ times in 3.5 seasons of pro ball. Ted Williams over 19 seasons K'd only 709 times. ha!
Yeah, Larry. Miggy can't run and he's a terrible defensive 3B. But what he can do with that bat is amazing.
