>>Alf is still the Cubs best power threat.
Yes, his 2 HRs are a real threat.
>>so a ground out with a guy on second is better than a groundout with a guy on first
Absolutely! Takes away the double play and makes it easier to score a run when the guy on 2nd moves up to third.
>>so he must have grounded into a double play. I see your point.
I don't know what play you're talking about. I thought you were making a general statement about grounding out with runner on 1st compared to runner on 2nd
"so a ground out with a guy on second is better than a groundout with a guy on first. Thanks"
Who said anything about a groundout? If the knucklehead didn't swing at the 1-0 pitch and Camp steals second, the pitch selection could be different, and there is a different comfort level with the pitcher having someone at second, as opposed to first. Dude, you're assuming since he gounded out on the second pitch of the at bat, that he would do the same on the 3rd pitch. That's funny and makes no sense.

Have you seen his OPS the last year?
