I like the Hardball Times revised zone ratings [RZR] and out of zone plays [OOZ]. I think you can take their statistics and couch them a certain way, and get some really good indicators. --Tony Blengino

I think that with the Hardball Times metrics you can come up with a baseline fairly easily and know what you’re talking about, whether a guy is above or below average at a certain position, and watch trends over the years fairly easily. --TB
We know the new group values defense highly.
We know Yuni rates extremely poorly amongst its preferred metric.
Something's got to give eventually.
For completeness, his UZRs show a poor trend as well.
