And by that I mean, how come certain positions are supposed to do certain things at the plate?
How come a third baseman must hit for power?
How come a shortstop should hit for contact?
If a shortstop went off and hit 50 home runs, everyone would say he's amazing.
But, if a third basemen hit 2 home runs, everyone would say he's lacking.
Because people get so attached to their stereotypes, that they can't look at the big picture.
Look at Carlos Gomez. He's a good player, and his 9 career home runs are acceptable because he plays CF, so he needs to be fast.
Now, look at Figgins.
He has 4 Home Runs in the last 3 years. And, people say that we need power.
All because of a position.
