I know what most of you guys think about Zack Collins, so I thought you might be amused by this perspective on his “defence.”

He is bad hitter (or at least has been historically), therefore he must be a good defender. I think that’s how it works.

Oh, this is hilarious. The following are actual words written about Collins (maybe don’t use fielding percentage to judge his defensive ability):
