Sunday Best–September 6th, 2009
The best defensive players at each position in each league according to the excellent series Diggin’ in the Defensive Dirt by Brian Joseph at Baseball Daily Digest. (Brian did not cover pitchers, so I made my own all-time selections to fill out the pages.)
|C||Yadier Molina||Gerald Laird|
|1B||Casey Kotchman||Paul Konerko|
|2B||Craig Counsell||Ian Kinsler|
|3B||Andy LaRoche||Joe Crede|

I need to grab a DeJesus from Sportlots this week.
