LAS VEGAS, Nev. — When Harry Reid isn’t following 2016 politics, he’s following the baseball playoffs, and he has some advice for the now-eliminated Washington Nationals.
“I’ve watched them closely, listened to them, all of them,” the Senate Minority Leader said. “It’s obvious the Nationals have to have a centerfielder. Trea Turner’s a shortstop or — he’s an infielder. He has no arm,” the Nevada Democrat said in an interview between campaign stops in Reno and Sparks. “You’ve heard all the pundits that he doesn’t play centerfield very well. He heads in the wrong direction, which, if it weren’t for his blinding speed, it would be a lot worse than it has been.”
