I've never put that together until I read your post, he really has a surprisingly poor read on the very position he played. Bennett, Molden, Barber, KJ is still batting but has a few strikes, McMannis, McCain, Quin, Harris, Carmichael and Keo. Kind of a hot mess when 1 out of 10 picks turned into a decent player.
