AL's best shortstop up for debate

 

AL's best shortstop up for debate

A nice column on why anybody not named Jeter would have been a better choice for Gold Glove, looking at a range of defensive stats, and showing that Alexei Ramirez was consistently better defensively than any other AL shortstop by almost any metric used except errors. He also talks about Elvis, and how in most categories he was only about average for an AL SS. To me what's most impressive about this piece is that it comes from an MLB.com writer that actually knows about defensive statistics. I did not think those existed.
