Fielding Graphs

One of the last frontiers of sabermetrics is fielding, and one of the flaws of sabermetricians is that we too often get hung up on math and numbers, and not enough on true understanding.

Understanding doesn’t always come from tables of numbers. Sometimes you just need to see things instead of adding them, and now David Pinto has shown the way with several graphs that visually demonstrate David Eckstein’s strengths and weaknesses as a shortstop. This is superb, cutting-edge work in my opinion, and I hope it opens up a floodgate of similar graphical information.

Dave Studeman was called a "national treasure" by Rob Neyer. Seriously. Follow his sporadic tweets @dastudes.
