On paper, the Cardinals should have a pretty good outfield. Very fast, good gloves, no one would expect more than one fluke every month or so. But in just the last two weeks, the warning track has proven to be too daunting of a foe leading to two serious blunders.
Like said before, this outfield is very fast, but maybe a little too fast. The first ridiculous error comes from Marcell Ozuna overrunning a ball he thought was going to go for a homerun, but landed several feet short. What should have been a routine fly ball, ended up being a ground rule double due to a serious lack of depth perception
Next up, Dexter Fowler somehow puts together an even worse display of athleticism.
This is so terrible for so many reasons. First, this ended up going for a homerun. Second and most important, it was Noah Syndergaard at the plate. You let your pitcher give up a homerun to another pitcher. And a pitcher of the Mets, no less. How is he supposed to tell his family? It’s like letting a 13 year old take you yard.
