    I was reading about the new fielding evaluation method (SAFE) and it looks pretty complex. From one quick read, I really can’t tell if it’s an improvement or not. I’d like to see how it correlates with other methods and how consistent it is from year to year. I will read it again later. Evaluation of fielding and how it interacts with pitching is my favorite saber area right now.

    This system claims Inge to be a negative and Guillen to be a positive…Hmmm. That’s not the way I see it.

    One thing I noticed is at the bottom they used given names instead of nicknames. That #2 CF listed as Exavier Logan is the beloved NOOK Logan. Nook is the best outfielder I’ve ever seen.
