heads up: I'm gonna start a fresh thread as soon as the Jays game is over.

Might as well not have to interrupt the WBC talk by having to shut down this thread and move on in just 15 or so posts.


EDIT: 12 posts.

also wanted to pass this along before we move on:

Gold Gloves are going to have a statistical component to the decision process moving forward, and Rawlings is partnering with SABR to help try and develop a newer, better, more complete defensive metric called SABR Defensive Index (SDI). Good on them. We need something that's more reliable and more universally acceptable than the mishmash of UZR and DRS and traditional stats like fielding % or errors.
