The best defenders of the decade by UZR
Posted by Nick Steiner
MGL gives us some great data.
So the best defender of the decade, in terms of overall runs saved, is Andruw Jones, with 161 runs saved. If you look at runs saved per 150 defensive games, given at least 500 defensive games, the leader is... Andruw Jones, at +20 per. If you combine runs saved with positional value, then the best is still Andruw Jones. Last year, Andruw played DH for much of the year... I don't think I've ever seen a player age so fast.
Scott Rolen, Adrian Beltre, Chase Utley and Doug Mientkiewicz also had great decades.
