Default Dom question

Can he play 3B at all? Questionable power at 1B but great glove, David is dead, we could resign Duda, and Alonso looks like he may end up a stud.

I was going to respond and say that being left handed shouldn't limit you to 1B and that it can't be that uncommon and is overrated by fans but upon further research no lefty has even been inserted into a game at 3B since 1997 (which is actually crazy) so I'm gonna take the L here.

It's literally an entire extra step because you essentially have to pivot your entire body around to be in a throwing position, whereas it just naturally works out for Righty throwers. You're essentially conceding any play that wouldn't allow for the fielder to take that extra step.

Besides, lets be honest, 9 times out of 10, a Lefty with arm strength enough for SS/3B is going to be on the mound anyways.

If you don't realize that lefties can't play 2B, SS or 3B, you probably shouldn't be sharing baseball opinions.
