But an uncannily identical batting line the next year with the Os (15 homers, 70 RBIs, .247/.334/.384) was good enough for a 106 OPS+ and a fourth-place RoY finish a mere 4 points behind Ken Griffey, Jr. (the O's Gregg Olson won, it was the "Why Not?" season). Despite 20 errors and a negative dWAR, I do indeed remember him being a slick fielder at third.
My father once played slow pitch softball in a Men's over 60 League. Most of the guys can still hit and throw, but as we get old, we lose our ability to run. Once my father drilled a line drive to right center that looked like a good, clean, hit... until the Right Fielder threw him out at first base.
I yelled, "Dad, that's embarrassing... getting thrown out at first on a hit to Right Center like that!"
He said, "You missed last week... they threw me out on a hit to Left Center...."....
