Pompey Needs Guidance On Art Of Playing Defence

Dalton Pompey was just too tentative, too defensive on defence. Too shy on some balls, too soft. As Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters in Cleveland on Saturday, “Defence is a given.’’ Of course, the meaning of that is that ball players have a natural tendency to be pretty solid at the position they play, having been grounded in many aspects from the time they started...
