    Hopefully Zobrist or somebody else (Evan or Aki?) can be the answer at short. Harris can hit, but he’s got the proverbial iron glove with no range. And as a 2nd baseman, Wilson makes a good bench warmer. It’s amazing how many plays those two (plus Wiggy, who also has very limited range away from first or third) don’t make.

    Rays’ pitching is bad, but having such poor fielders in the middle of the infield is a big problem begging for a salution, imo.
