Murton vs. Moreland

I've been drawing this comparison ever since the season ended. Hair color aside, and Murton being faster, I've wondered why so many people are down on Murton? Defensively he isn't the best, but neither was Moreland, and he has a solid place in Cubs lore. I view both guys as solid players that love the game, and always seem to do the things a team needs to win. Murton will develop more power as he gains experience. Give Murton a chance.
And, as a side note, though I am generally against fights in baseball, Moreland was one of the best mound chargers. It would just go off in his head and he'd back in pads thinking he was a linebacker.
