Here is a question for the heck of it. Who is a better center fielder, Angel Pagan or Coco Crisp? I am talking strictly defense. Please give a reason with your answer.
Pagan because Coco Crisp couldn’t break a pane of glass from 10 yards with his throws.
Don’t know about Crisp since I don’t follow the A’s that much but Pagan is average at best. Too often he turns the wrong way going back on a fly ball or takes a bad route to balls in front of him.
I grew up watching Willie Mays play center field so perhaps my idea of a competent centerfielder is a bit skewed.
Coco……..he makes more spectacular plays in the field and with the bat with his hits in the clutch. Pagan is good at putting up good stats but that’s about it……..
