On Gonzo’s Defense

Says John Fay:

(Alex) Gonzalez’s defense is debated on the blog a lot. You can look at numbers, but anyone who sees him on a daily basis will tell you he’s been outstanding.

Whatever. To the contrary, I’d say that anyone who watches Gonzo closely on a daily basis will tell you that he has absolutely no range and that his defense is atrocious.

Gonzalez makes a diving stab occasionally and everyone wants to talk about how awesome he is; meanwhile, an actual good defensive shortstop (Paul Janish?) would have made most of those plays without even leaving his feet.

Okay, discuss….
