It's one thing to defend your player, but, it's assinine to make blind judgements about another. Rollins is twice the defensive SS that Tulo is. I don't care about stats. Stats only tell you about the balls you field. If you just read the stats, you won't see the huge difference in range between Tulo and Rollins.
Wow..... Just WOW!
So we're supposed to take your subjective opinion to heart on this because you watched a few games on TV. A vast majority of the baseball community believes Rollins getting the Gold Glove is a farce. Rollins is an above-average defensive SS, but Tulo was the best in the league and deserved the accolades. This isn't an indictment on Rollins, just a quarrel with the best defensive shortstop in the league not getting his pub.


Tulo gets to more balls than Rollins. They now have a metric that measures that.
