I'm at the theater waiting for a show to start, so I'm following the play-by-play and this thread. Can anyone explain how this happens?

Anybody see that stat on defensive runs saved? Reddick was lower than Brantley, which is surprising!

Me thinks Advanced defensive stats have a long way to go before you give them any thought

Yeah for some reason we make this awful O's staff look like the 90's Braves

Most people who know how those metrics are built will caution you not to pay too much attention to small samples, for values of "small" including an entire season or two.

That's a good point, especially with how few chances per game outfielders get.

The flip side of the argument is that we are notoriously bad at eyeballing fielders' skill level. Reddick does make some highlight reel plays but he has slowed down a lot and doesn't cover much ground. Being a highly-rated outfielder involves mostly getting to more balls than the other guy. They can all catch the ball. Brantley has a great arm and has gone entire seasons without making any sort of error. Reddick looks like he's hustling and Brantley looks like he's loafing but they're really not all that different when it comes down to results.

Bundy is that guy who isn't that good, complains about every call, gives up a few line outs right at people, then goes back to the dugout thinking "f*** I'm good"

I remember about this time last year thinking he was a huge hole in the lineup and we would need to move on. This year he carried the team in April and May but now is easily the worst player on the team since we dumped the others. No chance he plays next year unless it's strictly as a reserve. He is better than Kemp but not much.

100%.

Shooting star is solid and definitely a classier look but doesn't really distinguish itself from uniforms. You can tell this is an Astros jersey from a mile away and there's nothing else like it. It's also a little more subtle than the rainbow guts.
