Re: Aren't we giving too much weight to CF defense?
We just have to disagree on this junkhead....defense is generally underrated by most fans, imo. Pitching will appear worse than it really is, "gift" hits give the opponent more opportunities, can change the momentum of an inning or extend it, and in CF those gifts are often of the XBH variety. I don't think Doug overstated the number of gift hits that Choo likely allows with his extremely poor UZR. In an analysis of this team's problems this year, Choo in CF is way back on the list but it IS on the list.
