Brantleys errorless streak

Postby Kipnis22 » Sun Jun 15, 2014 10:15 am

Why doesn't Brantley get a lot more notice and credit? By my count he's up to 320 straight games without an error (broke the Indians record vs LAA in August last year and I believe I saw baseballs record ifor an OF is 359 straight games which he can break this year (knock on wood)

No, he had one error earlier in the season that broke his streak.. very underrated defensively though, near the top of the league in OF assists.

According to MLB.com you are incorrect, he is errorless since 2012

Either way (streak ongoing or not).. he's been playing LF at an elite level throughout the season. He's close to the league lead in OF assists and he continues to evolve as a superb all around player, team leader and Tribesman.. All good things... You might consider him as a comp to Carlos Beltran..????

Are you only looking at games played in LF? The last time he made an error in LF was 2011. However, he has made an error this year as Zajac said, but he was playing CF when that happened. So as said, his errorless streak was stopped and has restarted.

I watched the game he made an error in. I know for a fact he made an error. It was in CF, however. So.. yeah errorless in LF, but his overall errorless streak in consecutive games is no longer active, Kip.
