The #stlcards fell to the Washington Nationals in four straight in the NLCS as the offense struggled. At least four Cardinals may have played their last game with the team.

As the #stlcards move into off-season mode, free agency approaches for five players and six others are competing for Gold Gloves. Our history feature looks back at St. Louis’ 2013 World Series loss to the Boston Red Sox. https://t.co/v0ee05uoAf pic.twitter.com/ap2RZk9U5k

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.November 4, 2019 at 9:30 am #113649
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.)November 11, 2019 at 7:34 am #114108
Front office, manager & coach contract extensions are the 1st off-season business for #stlcards. Kolten Wong captures another defensive award and Ted Simmons again has a Hall of Fame opportunity.
