You know, I was looking at these fielding chances too, and you are right, Smith leads head and shoulder in that stat, with an average of 3.3 chances per game and Omar at 2.89. Funny thing was, Ripken led Omar as well at 3.04 a game. All those years of the Orioles trying to move him to third too when he was probably the best fielding SS of the time as proved by his fielding chances. Who would have thunk it? Ozzie is the best because Hootie and James say so!


It's too bad you think so lowly of Cal. He had maybe the best arm of any ss in the last 20 years. He played 5 to 10 feet deeper then the average ss, thats why he had above average range. You can't play deep without a cannon. I qouted a James statement. Write him if you so strongly disagree. I agree on the statement, with or without Bill. I figured a outside source might help, i was wrong.

If you only look at those 2 stats, you will get yourself in a bind.

Typo, it should have said 87 to 84 Ozzie.

No problem with anything, Hootie. I really, really, didn't want to get into a debate about this. I don't have a leg to stand on nor do I particular care enough to really put up much of a fight, so I shall bow out gracefully.
