So, yeah, I'd take "old man Kent", who has done quite well for himself manning the middle infield this century, and before then.


4 ('98 in the NL) Gold gloves for Booner to......

none .


Well, there's where we disagree. If I were choosing my defensive team, I'd hardly take Gold Gloves into consideration, with the way they hand them out these days. I see too many guys getting them on rep these days, stealing them away from other deserving players. Not saying that's the case with Boone, but I'd never use Gold Gloves to support an argument regarding current players.

I know Boone can get to balls that Kent cannot, and turns the double play better than anyone but I didn't expect to see what I did from baseballprospectus.

There is a lot you have to look at when evaluating a fielder, a lot more than fld% and ZR and after intensive discussions about it on this site I have determined that only a large difference in fielding stats can determine the better fielding. IMO, the only real was is to watch them and that's a whole new skill in it's own.

Yeah, Boone used to be one the best fielding secondbasemen ever...he's certainly regressed recently.

I'm a biased Cubs fan, I'll take Sandberg.

I'd take Manny Trillo myself ;-D
