Even under the most perfect of conditions, Chris Woodward works one of the most confusing jobs in baseball.
He's on the field, but he's not. He wears a batting helmet, but he never goes to the plate. He is credited for runs he doesn't score, blamed for outs he doesn't make, and generally exists in a limbo where the line between success and failure can be drawn with one windmill sweep of the arm.
Woodward is the Dodgers new third base coach, a job difficult enough without this one small additional burden: He had never really done it.
