In this case, we’re talking about some comments John Farrell made a few days ago, insisting that Shane Victorino will be his starting right fielder as long as he is healthy. With most assuming that job belonged to the phenomenon that is Mookie Betts, there was some predictable outrage in response to these comments. It’s understandable, at least.
