Funny- I just came here to discuss this very topic. I, too, find it odd that a guy with a 99 speed rating can have a D- range (e.g. 2001 Clayton Bellinger, who is on the WW right now). Having C range due to poor reads and angles, yeah, ok, but blazing speed and having the same, or worse, defensive range as an old, balky-kneed guy just seems counter-intuitive. Ah well- it's not a big deal- just a curiosity. I guess there's not a perfect resolution to every situation.
