      Indeed, he appears to be.

      Tatsunami, used to be a tremendous second baseman, but he has lost so much
      speed due to unspecified knee injuries that his range at second base was
      usually near the bottom of the league every year. That does not take away
      from the fact that he has great hands and terrific instincts for going
      after fly balls.

      A lot was made this season about how good Franco is at catching short flies
      in the outfield, but Tatsunami is better.

      By the way Rob, how would you evaluate Kuji's play at second after a career
      at short?

      Jim
