NED COLLETTI WAS RIIIIIIGHT

This is John Dewan’s +/- ratings system (which is supposedly available on Fangraphs now?).  It’s ordered by runs saved by defense.  As you can imagine, a + number is good and a – number is bad.

1. Seattle, +27
2. San Diego, +25
3. Tampa Bay, +24
4. Colorado, +22
5. St. Louis, +20
6. Arizona, +19
7. Toronto, +19
8. Minnesota, +17
9. Washington, +15
10. Yankees, +14
11. Philadelphia, +14
12. San Francisco, +14
13. Oakland, +13
14. Texas, +12
15. Cleveland, +11
16. Cincinnati, +9
17. Boston, +5
18. White Sox, +5
19. Houston, +4
20. Mets, +4
21. Atlanta, +3
22. Baltimore, +2
23. Detroit, -2
24. Florida, -2
25. Cubs, -7
26. Angels, -10*
27. Pittsburgh, -10
28. Milwaukee, -14
29. Dodgers, -20
30. Kansas City, -21

Second-worst defense in all of baseball by a large margin. That’s pretty sad.

Needless to say, Matt Kemp is a part of it, but only a part of it. Even though he’s doing kinda poorly in CF this year (-11.8 UZR so far this year), his three-year UZR/150 sample size suggests he’ll rebound. He’s an average defensive CF, he’s not this bad, and he’s not entering a decline phase yet.
