    I disagree that AHhed was better than Dejong, as Paul led him in most all categories, assists, put outs, range factor, and almost half the errors/ fielding percentage. I also think back to the 2 errors Dejong made on last second decisions to get a force at second instead of the out at first.
    Goldschmidt has very equal stats to Rizzo, but that would be a coin flip to me. Paul saved many errors on errant throws.

    In the final SABR Defensive Index, Ahmed was the top fielder in the National League – across all positions. DeJong was a close second. The SDI is made up of five different defensive metrics that are more sophisticated than assists, putouts and errors. (Ahmed also won The Fielding Bible Award at SS across MLB.)

    At first, the SDI shows Christian Walker was far better than either Rizzo or Goldschmidt, but it takes time for the reputations of new guys to get voter attention.

    If you haven’t read this article yet, I recommend it. (It includes a link to the details of which metrics are included in the SDI.)
