The latest frontier of statistical research in baseball—and the newest front in the Yankees vs. Red Sox arms race—is defense. And it’s yielding some surprising insights about which players are worth their salaries. --- Somehow I ended up with a New York magazine subscription. They just started showing up. Anyway, the latest issue has an interesting article on defensive stats, specifically on John Dewan and Baseball Info Solutions method of determining Plus/Minus and Runs Saved. I'm sure the more sabremetricially proficient know most of this stuff already but its a decent read and good basic breakdown for the layperson. And it will learn you what a "Fliner" is. Also, there is a depressing graphic featuring our very own SS's -33 Plus/Minus. Lando better start putting up some serious offensive stats. I've been on the sidelines here mostly this season and last, but hope to join in on a Game Thread here soon. I've been really enjoying the Reposters and Articles. Here's to a winning home-stand, starting with the Dodgers.
