For a guy that has no power, doesn't walk, and hits for just a slightly above lg. avg batting avg, he needs to be doing all the "little things" right. All these outs on the bases are TOTALLY unacceptable.
8 Caught Stealing, 6 Pickoffs, (4 of which are considered part of CS I guess) and 3 baserunning outs trying to advance on hits. All this from a guy with just 240 PA's and just 74 times on base.
13 outs on the bases out of 74 times on base, or 18% of the time Willie gets on....he makes an out on the bases. THATS ONE IN FIVE !!!!
Maybe the pickoff at 2nd base today wouldn't have mattered in the big scheme of things, but it sure felt like a game changer at the time.
It's really got to stop
