Props to AGon for that catch he made in short LF.
Props to Phillips for another great play behind 2B, with the in the air throw to 1B.
Props to Votto for a nice grab at 1B to steal a double from Pitt.

On the subject of defense, did you know that Bruce is the fourth best fielder (in any position) according to UZR and UZR/150?

How can you calculate something like that? I mean it can't take into account balls that maybe a average outfielder tracks down, or what balls they should've caught but didn't get. Something like that doesn't flatter me.

Of course not--You're not Jay Bruce.:D
Seriously, though, that does seem kind of nebulous. I have been impressed overall with the defense this year, however.

Jay Bruce has definitely played phenomenal defense this season... He's made a ton of diving catches, and thrown a few ropes to get guys out.
