Get the vote outPosted by Dave Studeman
Would you like to vote for the best defenders in the league? Want to add your expert baseball opinion to a group that is having a real impact on things? Then head on over—right now—to Tango's 2010 Scouting Report.
Here's the deal: Tango collects as much input as possible from as many baseball fans as he can to publish his (our!) unique fielding scouting reports. You only have to vote on the team you follow regularly. You're only asked to vote on a player if you've seen him play at least 10 games. But rest assured, your input is critical. If enough fans contribute their input, the output is an insightful list of the best fielders in the majors.
Really, the Internet should be full of this kind of thing, and Tango is to be congratulated for his willingness to put the time and effort into collecting our opinions. The results are viewed by many media folk to help them determine their Gold Glove choices, or at least confirm them. And the results are also included in the panel of judges for John Dewan's annual Fielding Awards (published in the Bill James Handbook).
So head on over and help the cause. Tell 'em Studes sent ya.
