The writing is on the glove for Lindor: 'Be consistent'
Look closely at Francisco Lindor’s glove and you’ll see an interesting monogram. Embroidered on the shortstop’s Rawling’s model is “Lindor – BC.” The “BC” doesn’t stand for a college. It isn’t the initials of a girlfriend or family member. In this case, “BC” is a mantra: be consistent. That is what he has been and then some this year, and the IBI's Stephanie Metzger recently sat down and talked with the top prospect about his season to date.
