Wouldn't this have been like the old American League positioning (outside) that Hickox was originally taught and used for first 10 years and 900 games of his career? A very well respected AL colleague used another position (inside) and had this outcome below. There are tradeoffs to be made under any position used, and even when clearly seen from a proper (by 100% concensus) position, errors in judgment still occur.

That miss has nothing to do with what I thought U2 needs to do with a normal DP. I might be mistaken but I thought we wanted to go to the open glove side to call the play at 2B. Hickox actually did move but to the back side of the glove. I wonder what the rationale is for that.
