My changes improved the defense by sliding Honus Wagner over to 2B and putting Phil Rizzuto at SS (Jackie Robinson was hitting .201 and took a seat on the bench). Rizzuto has hit .314 with a 1.011 OPS in his 11 starts to make the case that he is not just a pretty glove. He has over 1000 plate appearances for me now with a career .749 OPS and 8 WAR in what amounts to two full seasons of play (295 games). Maybe I should leave Scooter at SS permanently? Worth considering...
