    It seems way more accurate than UZR/150 and a little better than DRS.

    Because OAA uses the statcast system, and takes into consideration a fielder's position before calculating the outcome of individual fielding chances.

    My eye test matches up better with OAA than DRS and UZR/150.

    Indeed.

    I do see my eye test matching up with my views on Sox defenders, this year, though.

    How do you think Raffy is going to age in a Red Sox uniform? Devers for ever like a fine wine, or Nevers Dever like some stinky old cheese?

    Not well, I'm afraid. Everyone seems to agree now he's a DH. $313.5 million is a lot of dough for a DH. Should have spent it on Betts, obviously. Thanks Henry!

    Mistakes like losing Mookie Betts tend to compound themselves. Now we're paying the same money to a vastly inferior player.
