The analogy to a shortstop is insightful. If Oates were a baseball manager would he want a left handed catcher to throw to first or a right handed catcher to throw the guy out going to third. He'd probably seek out that ambidextrous guy. LOL
Yes, it is insightful... but only because Adam is wrong. There have been 3 left-handed shortstops... one so good that he was elected to the Hall of Fame.
