His 06 numbers:
.255 .299 .397 .696
What are those numbers in comparison to
the league average for SS's?
I know they are somewhat low, but would it be a solid improvement to our middle INF defense? Is that a plus that should be factored into the equation other then looking at a player's OPS?
Why is that always the first thing many seem to look at on a player?
is not the most reliable and dependable stat for getting a total evaluation of a player. IMHO, it's not a "tell-all" stat.
But I also agree with M2. If the offense is there around a player like Gonzalez, and can make up for that "lack", then I see nothing wrong when that player has a solid glove.
I just wouldn't commit to him long term.
