Here's one fact you left out: Story didn't play a single inning at SS this whole season.I'll see if I can sum up the facts, as I understand them.
You are taking the unsourced word of a Denver columnist as gospel, after Story had already left. Also Colorado consistently makes inexplicable and ridiculous personnel decisions, they are almost certainly the worst run team of the 30.If the Colorado Rockies, who should know Story better than anyone, were willing to sign Story and keep him at short stop, then where is the issue? Who has the better facts, the Rockies or a random poster telling us about throwing velocity?
Also it's not a 'random poster' telling you about throwing velocity, it's the actual numbers, and it's an article from Mike Petriello, who is great at this kind of thing (he was the one who started talking about the reverse Coors effect on the road, before anyone else was).
Anyway, none of this matters. Either Story can play SS or he can't, I'd bet that he can't but the important thing is that Bloom knows the answer.
