    The reason I think its flawed is because, Im just simply biased.

    IMO he has been one of the best 1B at scooping the ball and saving errors the last couple of years but if you come upon a more recent "scoop" test that shows how he has fared against other 1B since the last one was done, that'd be great. Just my opinion that he can't be worse than the numbers you posted earlier.

    UZR should not ever be used at 1b.

    When does range really become a factor at 1B? The plays some first baseman save with their reaction and their ability to scoop or save throws is > the range they cover.

    It depends, are there more scoops than groundballs out of range? It's different with different teams obviously, when you compare having a poor arm in Jeter or an absolute cannon in Tulowitzki.

    I've yet to come across some statistical model that isn't flawed in some way or another. The question really is whether it is less flawed (or closer to perfect) than other models - ie is it generally more reliable.
