    I think last time they did this, Willy T was one of the better CF performers.

    Any thoughts? Surprises?

    The last time you posted the "UZR tidbits" was about a week ago. It was the same three for the top CF'ers, only Cameron and Kemp were switched I believe.

    Where does Willy actually rank by the way?

    Surprised by Bay, Beltran, Hardy and Ethier.

    Does the Green Monster hurt Bay's UZR?

    Is Ethier that bad in the field? For some reason I thought he was a good RF'er.

    Is Beltran getting old?

    Is JJ Hardy really one of the best defensive SS's in the game? In the games I've seen I've never really been that impressed.

    Ah, OK. My senility might be "here" rather than simply "approaching."

    I had similar questions when I saw the list. Especially Ethier. I thought he was supposed to be good.

    Is Michael Young a good defender anywhere? I know he was considered to be a below average SS. Now he's ranked as the worst Third Baseman in the game. How did he rank back when he played 2B?

    Bay's pretty slow. Gets decent jumps, but slow.
