I remember what happened. I just didn't care to go into all the details of Yocom and the 5 different centerfielders.
The main point was to say that the extraordinary step of moving JaCoby from 2B to CF to start the season had little to do with needing more speed out there, and almost everything to do with not having a proven hitter who was a true centerfielder.
he started getting the hits to fall
For a very brief period of time. Arby Fields had a couple of good stretches too. Maybe Sciambra would have brought his averages up given enough time, or maybe not.
Even so, remember that I was the guy who was always saying that JaCoby should have never been moved out the infield, even if it meant platooning Fields & Foster & Sciambra out in CF. So it's not like I was ever against him starting or anything, then or now.
