Brandon Crawford in IF defense

Interesting FanGraphs article. "I’ve had the same pitchers, pretty much, since I’ve been in the big leagues." It makes sense, doesn’t it? Familiarity breeds comfort. If the shortstop knows the pitches that are coming intimately, he knows which way to cheat. He knows which pitches will break bats, and which could be scorched up the middle. To hear Crawford say it: "I know whether or not they are going to hit their spot with their pitches, who likes certain pitches, who will stay away."
