He went to UPenn so he is "bright"... but hes not baseball smart. You even said it yourself "never took a walk." He has no baseball sense and since we are evaluating him on baseball terms he is not "baseball smart." The man cant get a 1600 on his SATS and run mensa, but hes a baseball player, not a scientist... so i really dont care.
Glanville was infamous for making those catches were he runs towards the wall and makes a diving catch. Of course this made him look like a gold glover, but he just played to close to second and was always caught out of position. HE SCARES NO ONE. And if he had anything to offer a team he would have been signed already.
