    They actually have stats for those that can dig them well.

    Reynolds is near the top at saving bad throws.

    Every human action is measurable.

    And Dunn has more power too

    ISO
    Dunn - .259
    Reynolds - .240

    Dunn has been a better offensive player in every way.

    Far enough to be separated by

    23 points in wOBA

    Adam Dunn has the same offensive value as Adrian Gonzalez and Paul Konerko

    Mark Reynolds has the same offensive value as Russell Branyan and Reggie Sanders

    Not a bad signing, it'll be interesting to see how they do this year.

    There are cameras that track every ball thrown in the dirt, and the range of balls thrown around the bag and where they are.


    Just like pitch f/x cameras track pitches, this watches first base and all the balls thrown to them.

    There is also a counting number of balls that hit the dirt first and the number of throwing errors an infield provides as well.

    Reynolds ranks toward the top. It's measurable. I don't have the data, I just saw it once after the season ended and I remember Ike Davis and Mark Reynolds were both really high on the list.

    It's stats like these that make posting on mlb forums unenjoyable and make watching baseball games pointless.

    Why?

    It's more information for those that choose to access/utilize that information. You don't have to know this information. But when people make claims about a players ability to do something, it's nice to know the right answer when it's available.

    I will never understand why more information makes things less enjoyable for anyone.

    Really nice signing by a not-dumb FO. Adds some much needed punch to their lineup in an era where power is waaaaaaay down league wide.
