The Michael Young Saga - Main Stream Media Strikes Back

Hey, it might be an LSB-friendly producer and a Sunday sports story, but it's a start!

Michael Young's second best season: 2008

9

I was browsing through the new historical WAR figures provided at Baseball Projection (the home of CHONE), and it puts MY at 4.1 last season; the second best year of his career. The reason it differs so much from just about any other rating? He's put down as 9 runs above average defensively in TotalZone. When I've got better information (and it disagrees) I'll put more stock in the better information, but I still think it's interesting.

American League Revised Zone Rating Leaders

This wasn't deserving of its own diary, but I was a bit amazed to realize this. That there is the current list of AL shortstops in RZR, and one Michael Young leads the league with an .867. Nifty! Not only that, but he's done it with more balls (150) hit in to his zone than any other player. However, he ranks (a distant) 8th with only 11 outs made out of his zone. Still, that's pretty good. He's also 5th among AL SSs in defensive win shares.
