Firstly, please allow last names only (or team names without the city and vice-versa). That just falls in line with most other sports quizzes on the site. A few other notes: A lot of players dove for balls roughly 50 feet to the left, but many catch those balls. I think of plays by Byron Buxton or Billy Hamilton successfully catching balls 50 feet from where he was stationed at the outset of the play. This question--and many more--were incredibly vague. The two relievers question, which could be parsed down to the actual answers, could be literally anyone. Addison Reed, Adam Ottavino, and Chris Devenski all came to mind before the Yankees duo (especially since Betances was truly awful this year). The Mariners signed many veterans throughout the year, like Danny Espinosa and Mark Lowe (DiPoto was busy, as usual). Finally, Adrian Gonzalez was not on the World Series roster, so that question is misleading (even if deductively simple).
