-0.1 rWAR. 

He had a bad drop yesterday.

One out above average per Baseball Savant.

He is fine defensively. He may look oafish, but he is fine.

 

No he is not "fine." This is a perfect example of when the "stats" distort reality. He has had numerous bad drops. He got away with one on Saturday that should have been his second error of the game.

You're right. The stats are wrong and your eyes are right.

It's like seeing a 5-foot waves and being told, "Nope, surf forecast says 2-foot waves. Don't believe what you are riding." 

Sorry I have actually been watching the games and not just quoting sss metrics.

Remember when folks thought Davis was pretty good in the outfield because he looked smooth out there?

Good times.

The folks were, of course, incorrect.

I get it, that drop the other night was bad and it is hard to forget the ball hitting him in the head. That is why we have defensive stats. Because your mind plays tricks on you. He is fine.

Right. The rest of us only read metrics and don't watch games. He is fine.

And Sisco is a fine defensive catcher.

And until tonight, Dean Kremer is a sub 2.00 ERA pitcher.

Hey man, Derek Jeter won 5 Gold Gloves. The stats must be wrong.

The first thing is not and has never been backed up by defensive stats. What is also not backed up by stats is that but that a lot of people swore was true, is that Severino is a good defensive catcher. I got into several arguments about that last year, and this year the eye test seemed to catch up with the advanced stats and I haven't heard nearly as much debate to that point.

The second was factually accurate, but clearly not a guarantee of future success. I don't know what type of point you think you are making.

Dude, he fell down making both of those catches.

How about you find one where he stays on his feet?

Stewart is terrible defensively and uncoordinated regardless of the attempt that current stats try to qualify talent. He's had five plays since Saturday that would embarrass a player at any level. But, sure, hang your hat on sss and misleading stats. He'll prove you wrong in the end.

Sliding catches are not a good sign. Means he had difficulty reading the ball's flight. 

That's what I said!

I love defense stats and I’m a big believer. But they take a long time to normalize, and the eye test is also meaningful. Stewart is faster than he looks, but he does look clumsy, he doesn’t seem to follow the ball well, he appears to get late jumps, plays the ball poorly off the wall, and doesn’t seem to have a strong or accurate arm. His actual errors have been pretty egregious, but in addition to those, he doesn’t seem comfortable in right. It’s early days yet, and of course he needs time to work out the kinks, and the stats will normalize and be more accurate.

I don’t know which traits can be fixed with time and practice, and which traits are what they are( he’s certainly not going to get any faster, for instance) So I don’t know how much he can improve and in which areas, but for now, we have to hope he does improve.

Regarding catchers, ours are BAD. But they hit, and so no one cares... I wish someone would.

    • You are right. There will be baseball when profits can be made again.
    • I think you will be seeing “essential” workers begin to be vaccinated by Feb-March.  December and January will be healthcare workers and the elderly but this makes up probably less than 25 percent of the population. 
    • Umm..yes, you are wrong.  Several teams treat the position as of its a full time position.  That at bat stats is a fact you can’t argue against.  That’s the definition of “full time”.    
    • March should be early enough to book your flight and hotel.
    • I wonder if they would still be on the hook for the entire salary if they waited til after a potential announcement of a shortened season?
    • Nah, I’m not wrong. however, If I may my father’s comment half way through a performance of Mahler 8: ” well, I’ve had about as much of this as I can stand. Let’s go find something interesting to eat.“ And that is what I am going to do… God bless you and happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    • I posted way back at the beginning of the thread that I thought it was possible Nunez had another level of improvement left in him.   If I’m guessing (which is all it is), I think Hays and Santander will be better hitters than Nunez at their respective peaks.    But I don’t know it for sure.   It’s sort of a moot point since we agree Nunez isn’t really competing with those two for at bats.   As to Stewart, I’m guessing he will not turn out to be as good a hitter as Nunez, though I’m not sure about that, either.
