I just wish that when Dewan did these releases he'd give us a little bit more info on how, say, Simmons got to 37 runs this year. Otherwise it is just, hey, Simmons has 37 runs. Wow.
On the other hand, DRS got listed on Baseball-Reference as THE defensive stat and managed to stay there despite having to recalibrate their numbers in the middle of last season (remember when Darwin Barney and Brett Lawrie were the two best players in baseball?). I don't think they're doing that badly for themselves.
I think a little bit less black box to the masses would have made it more widespread.
So, over a full season Andrelton Simmons has been worth 5-ish wins on defense? That's insane. I'm not discounting that DRS might be overestimating Simmons, but that has got to be peak Ozzie status.
