I think that (plus his high bonus) speaks for itself. Like I said above, he is one of, or possibly the best player in this tournament, so it isn’t a surprise that he is doing good while batting third/playing SS.

Not sure I am going to get to excited over the results here.

Would be great if he could stick at the position.
His two-run triple mentioned above was off Nick Hutchings, who we just reported today as signing with the Pirates. I wanted to mention it above, but we were waiting on more info about Hutchings before posting about his signing.

“He has batted third in the order and played all three games at shortstop.”
