EE has great range IMO. I'm also not big on fielding statistics... I think fielding is a part of baseball that you can't get the whole picture by using stats
I agree 100%. EE has always been regarded very highly for his glove. Many seem to forget that the man is golden fielding the ball. I don't think they have ever actually watched him play. Maybe they just listen to what Marty, some reporters, and a few posters on here have said. His throwing has improved dramatically and he works his butt off (even Marty praises him for that). If I had to choose I would rather have a 23 yr old 3B with great instincts, an amazing glove, a strong arm, a great bat, but has to work on accuracy than an avg defensive 3B and EE at 1st.
