Iglesias just took a giant dump on Minasian's couch.

Jose Iglesias offers explanation for his surprising defensive downturn

https://www.audacy.com/weei/sports/red-sox/jose-iglesias-offers-explanation-for-defensive-downturn

Question: "You're one of the best defensive shortstops that any of us have ever seen. This year your defensive numbers are actually really bad. What is the explanation?"

Answer: "It’s fair. It’s fine. The numbers are not there. Not to find excuses, but energy has a lot to do with it. For me, I’m not concerned at all. Zero concerned about my defense or my stats on defense. It’s something I definitely have to improve number-wise. But I know it’s all about energy for me."

When asked to clarify if "energy" was in relation to playing in front of bigger crowds and such, Iglesias added, "Not necessarily. Just be in the moment. Feel connected and play for something. I like to play for something."

This is funny because I believe his defense was at his worst in the beginning of the season when we were still very much "playing for something".

So…I wonder how he explains the fact that his shitty defense contributed to the Angels not being able to play for something?

so much for that clubhouse chemistry motivating guys.  

And what a dogshit excuse this is btw.  Play to win and maybe you can bring some energy to the rest of the team.

What a losers mentality. Hard to see him getting any decent FA offers this offseason after making comments like that... and also sucking.

Maybe the Angels would be playing for something if you weren't one of the worst offensive and defensive shortstops in baseball. Iglesias' bad defense affected the entire pitching staff, not just himself.

Sounds as if you like watching ESPN highlight shows. Yes, he's made some fancy plays but he's also made a lot of errors and was a weak link in the defense 

Ouch.  Insults referring to ESPN highlights.  Powerful.  No, I saw action in the games, not in highlights at ESPN.  What's your basis for calling him a weak link.  You got stats like fielding percentage or other evidence for that?  You making the accusation doesn't make it so or make you the authority.  Just saying.

Every single SS makes a handful of amazing plays over the course of 150+ games played. 

Well, ask Fletch or the other guys in the IF how they would rate Iglesias.   It appears that the Red Sox think highly enough of him to sign him, and that's not just out of desperation for more bodies.
