Scooping at First

Bill James Online recently revamped their site. In the process, they’ve made certain articles available to non-subscribers, so even if you’re not forking over the $3 bucks a month or whatever it is, this little piece by John Dewan about first baseman scoops is visible to all. No Mets show up on the list — but then again, they haven’t had a consistent first baseman all year, so why would any — but Adrian Gonzalez is once again proven good at something baseball-related.

But if you’ve wondered how many runs a good first baseman saves by digging balls out of the dirt, it looks like the answer is about three runs in either direction.
