Re: Aren't we giving too much weight to CF defense?
You aren't giving it nearly enough weight. Think about it's value like you would batting average. Let's just say it is 1 hit a week that he doesn't get that a normal center fielder gets. That is 25 hits.
25 hits over a full season is worth 42 points of average. Given that some of those hits are going to be for extra bases..... do you still think is "inflated"?
