Check out The Raindrops. Avkash Patel has a great entry regarding defensive metrics, basically adding up and averaging four of the more recent, advanced defensive metrics, such as Rate2, UZR, Winsahres, and David Pinto's defensive metric. However, the analysis has a major flaw. Along with the Rate2, UZR, Winshares, and Pinto numbers, Avkash should really include the most critical of all defensive metrics: BBoH. What's "BBoH" you ask? Balls Bounced off Head. When you add in this critical defensive metric, we see that Roger Cedeno is indeed as bad as he looks out there.
