Lonnie Chisenhall is just chalking it up as a bad week. The young Indians third baseman does not believe the assortment of defensive miscues over the past several days are a sign of a larger problem.
Chisenhall said errors simply come with the territory down the third-base line.
"I feel fine. Third base is a tough position," Chisenhall said on Wednesday morning. "You're going to get errors that you don't have any control over. Some balls are going to hit off your shoulder. Balls are going to hit off your shins. You can't control a lot of that stuff.
That's right, you can't control balls hitting you in the shins or shoulders when you're trying to field them. You also can't control pop-ups missing your glove or throws missing the first baseman by ten feet. It all just comes with the position.
So everybody just lay off Lonnie. It's not his fault.
