Mike Francesa Show

Caller discusses Yankee third baseman Miguel Andujar. Questions arise about Andujar's fielding skills. Mike Schmidt is referenced by caller, who opines that Schmidt was a bad fielder. Francesa seemed to agree, saying "Schmidt was bad" (at fielding)...

All I can say is that Schmidt's reputation as a fielder was very good over a long period of time. His errors were more frequent than those of Brooks Robinson, etc. however.

S-O-M fielding ratings for Mike Schmidt as third baseman:
