    Infield Defense

    I think most of us know, RA is a quality that we all want from our players.

    In terms of the infield, I value AR second. If a player has a big AR, that greatly overpowers poor GL. 1B being, maybe, the exception.

    I welcome any comments.

    ^ That exactly RA>>AR>GL. Exception is 1B as he doesn't need AR, C needs AR over RA, but C defense isn't something I typically worry about too much.

    Delving a little deeper, I break it down as follows.

    1B- GL is premium, RA is second although the 2 could flip flop as long as the GL isn't poor. AR is not needed to be high but if it is, more DP's are initiated.

    2B- RA is easily the most important attribute with GL being not as vital. AR is way down on the list for this position. Higher arms will initiate or complete more DP's but it's far from a needed attribute.

    SS- RA is absolutely necessary, AR is a premium that should be valued and GL is less needed but can't be horrible. For defense, this should be a focal point.

    3B- I'm a little torn on this position. I would prefer a big AR over big RA provided the RA isn't horrible. GL is a bonus.

    C- AR is by far the most powerful defensive weapon at this position. To my limited knowledge, GL is almost meaningless. RA might not mean much but I had a high range C that seemed to get an abnormal amount of groundball outs, so it may not be a non factor.
