David Gassko over at The Hardball Times has an interesting look at the best and worst with the leather this year.
According to his findings, Alex Rodriguez stunk with the glove this past season. I wonder how this would look if one were to use first half stats versus second half stats? Earlier this year, I thought A-Rod was a stiff at 3rd – esp. going to his right. But, in the second half of the season, he seemed to be stellar in the field. It was night and day.
Even more interesting to me are the low ratings in this study for Juan Pierre and Vernon Wells. I thought Wells looked great in CF this year. And, I wished that the Yankees had a chance to get him. Also, we all know that Pierre is on the Yankees radar. If the glove is not there for Juan, then why bother?
Juse trade Pavano for Nook Logan and then bat him 9th when he gets here.
