Indeed, he played 706.1 innings at 1B in 2005, almost exactly half of what he would play in 2006.
UZR has the 05 Phillies at 64.5 runs above average fwiw
So, if I understand the facts correctly, he saved 11 runs in about half a season of play, and then never had a positive runs saved season the rest of his career? And that doesn't suggest a flaw in the data?
If the fluctuations in offensive numbers don't bother you there's no reason the fluctuations in defensive numbers should either.
Remember that guy who hit .400 for a month and a half, but never hit .300 ever in his career?
And that doesn't suggest a flaw in batting averages?
On television broadcasts, when the defensive alignment is introduced, they'll usually give the team fielding percentage. Wouldn't a better first approximation be team BABIP?
