On infield offense, defense, and breaking even

New, comments

Over at Camden Depot, there is a post up that talks about (and has graphs on) what a player has to do with the bat at each of the four infield positions in order to break even as an average player at his position, given a set of possible defensive contributions.

The article isn't really clear, and the graphs are a little confusing at first, but I think it is ultimately an interesting and helpful examination of how the offense and defense for the different positions fit together in various ways to get to "average."
