Oh, and he is a natural shortstop who is just finally about to get his chance to play shortstop. And in case anybody wasn’t sure, Turner is awfully good at shortstop.

Which is more impressive: the diving catch or the laser throw?

(Answer: yes.)

The Nationals certainly appear to have found themselves a steal in Turner. But that was readily apparent long before Turner even proved himself a capable — to say the least — shortstop.
