"I have no comment on that one," he said.
However, manager Davey Johnson doesn't seem to be worried about how his players are playing on defense. For now, there are no plans to go back to the drawing board to clean things up.
Johnson mentioned that he saw former Orioles teammate Brooks Robinson struggle defensively in a game, but didn't worry about Robinson, who is arguably the greatest defensive third baseman to play the game.
"I have all the confidence in the world in our defense," Johnson said. "We have a lot of talented guys out there. For whatever reason, sometimes, you make errors. I saw Brooks Robinson make three errors in one ballgame. Did I worry about it? No. We are just a little out of sync. We'll get there."
Asked if the high expectations were getting to the players, Johnson said: "I don't think so. Errors are part of this game . It always has been, it always will be. But I wouldn't trade in my guys for anybody."
