If you’re an Angels fan on social media, you’ve shared or liked a meme about David Fletcher (admit it). The super-utility man has become a fan favorite since showcasing his versatility all over the diamond last season.

It didn’t take long for him to make an impact on the fan base.
In the first of a new series that will examine whether Angels players, past or present, are overrated or underrated by Halo fans, David Fletcher offers a unique case as a second-year player who still has a lot to prove.
