Brian Joseph:

While UZR/150 is the stat du jour for many when it comes to defensive stats, there are plenty of statistics available that offer us some insight on defensive performance. For this reason, I thought it would be a great exercise to look at as many defensive metrics — from the unpopular fielding % and RF/9 to the very popular fielding value and UZR/150 — and rank them by position for each league. The next step was to add those rankings up and come up with a cumulative ranking at each position. Over the next week or so, I will look at each position around the Majors and present how the players ranked out at each position and which metrics were used (and where I pulled the data from).

Here are the 1B and 2B entries:

1B (Fielding %, RF/9, UZR/150, F2O%, bF2O%, RZR, OOZ, Fielding Value, +/-)

2B (Fielding %, RF/9, UZR/150, F2O%, DPR, RZR, OOZ, Fielding Value, +/-)
