Watching Beltran in RF for the Cards tonight (and Hunter in RF tonight for the Tigers) had me wondering: a CF has to be, first and foremost, fast. When he's no longer fast (or perhaps it's that someone else is just faster) but he can still hit, he'll usually move to a corner OF spot. My impression is that they usually move to LF, but maybe that's wrong: how often do they end up in RF?
Double steal, leading 8-2?

Cobb played a bunch of RF early in his career when Detroit had Sam Crawford in center. They switched after a couple of seasons and the team never looked back.
Hopefully this is not a new realization.
Puig scored from second tonight on a 3-1 grounder.
That is all.
