Who is faster? BillyButler or Yuniesky Betancourt

Sixth inning and I'm starting to steam. No, not about Betancourt's third careless error in two days or the ball he just threw into the dirt at third as the cutoff man.

My question is this: Who is faster -- Butler or Betancourt?

Sounds silly, eh? Well, on paper it isn't even a race. But in practice... well ... on a ground ball potential double-play on the infield, Butler beats Betancourt to first base by two strides.

I don't know how the powers that be can stand to watch anymore of this kid at short. If they respect baseball, it has to be tough.

  1. And to think, we're gonna be stuck with Betancourt next year when Mike Aviles (hopefully) comes back from injury.
