QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Q: What is your opinion of Zack Cozart? It seems fans pick on one player all the time, like Drew Stubbs the last few years, and now it is Cozart. — BILL, REYNOLDSBURG
A: Zack Cozart is, indeed, this year’s focus of negative attention, although it isn’t as pointed as it was with Stubbs. With Cozart it is more that he was batting in the wrong spot (No. 2) when he should be seventh or eighth, but that’s not his fault. Injuries forced manager Dusty Baker to bat him second when he planned to bat him seventh. Cozart is outstanding on defense and probably would be OK in the seven hole. And if there weren’t offensive holes at catcher and left field, the focus on Cozart wouldn’t be so bright.
