Dayton Moore and defense
Posted by Dave Studeman
R.J. has an important post up at Fangraphs about defensive metrics, Yuniesky Betancourt and the Royals. How can a general manager of a major league team claim that he doesn't understand defensive metrics? Even more to the point, as R.J. notes, how can he claim that to watch Betancourt is to love his fielding, when Mariner fans themselves disagree?
Perhaps we've found the latest "Moneyball" edge. Project a player's peformance into the future instead of living in the past, and find a new "market advantage" over the Dayton Moores of the baseball world. (Hat tip: Book blog)
