So, I have to admit that I am a newcomer to defensive metrics, so I don't have the full experience to appropriately comment on this article. However, I had to point out that ESPN has some guy named Nyjer Morgan being vastly better in center field than our man Gut.
Its Insider only so I'll try to sum up what it says.
Basically it says that since morgan had significantly less innings than gut we can take his UZR and multiply it out to UZR/150, and show that he had a UZR/150 of 40.5 to gut's 27.1 thus making morgan the apocalypse to flying things. Is this okay? Is there a small sample size problem? Do we have to destroy this writer for blasphemy against one of the deities here at LL?
Essentially I want wiser souls to tell me if my world view should be crumbling, because if Guti had one of the best defensive center fielding seasons of all time, what does this mean for the other guy? Also would it then make sense for the Nats to stick him in right center and have him cover both right and center and then make Adam Dunn into the first NL DH?
Well that was my first post, I sincerely hope I did not break any faux pas here at LL.
