Lorenzo Cain

Anyone else think Cain's defensive stats need a boost? He has been my lead off hitter for awhile, and does a great job. Hitting well over .300 and hits the long ball surprisingly well.
He chases down fly balls well, but never has any great plays. He never makes good throws! They are always realm weak, and off target. Can't make a throw to 3B, and he is my LF. What gives? He is one of the best defensive OF in Baseball.

I haven't found a single OF that can make a decent throw into the infield. Everything is off the mark and it's so bad that base runners can advance safely an extra base as long as they don't stop running.

Re: Lorenzo Cain

It may be due to playing him out of position. I have to say I constantly gun guys down at the plate I have pence in rf and created Barry bonds in lf I have to say I gun down runners at home about %80 of the time on close plays pence is my fav player in real life but he isn't the greatest hitter on my team I bat him 8th hitting .234 but he makes up for it on defense

It's because he is a Royal hahaha. In all seriousness the Royals as a whole get no love from SDS, as soon as Cueto became a Royal he was knocked down in rating even after being lights out lately

I have ... Jason Heyward has been fantastic for me ... in center field. I have thrown out at least 15-20 guys attempting to score on him. I don't understand why he's so good considering he's supposed to take a defensive ratings hit for being out of his primary position, but he's been stellar.

Re: Lorenzo Cain

Remember not to full charge your throw in with an already weak arm as it reduces accuracy. Just hit the cut off man

Do you tend to be late on swings or hit opposite field a lot? He is a pull hitter so his timing window is moved a bit earlier.
