Im looking to the experts to help me out with something I've struggled with. Playing a 5 man, would you put your best infielder at middle or short? I can see advantages to both, having him at middle for the double plays and stuff around the bag is a plus, but also having him at short for the longer throws to first.
My situation is I have one of the best infielders around, has an absolute cannon for an arm, makes all the easy plays, and a lot of ones he has no business making. When we were playing a 4 man infield, he was a game changer. Now that we are playing higher, its crucial to run the 5 man, and since then it seems like hes handcuffed. My other infielders are very solid, but not as dynamic.
So what is your preference? Sorry if this is a no-brainer..
