re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
All I'm saying is last year, Beckham had the best defensive fielding percentage among qualifying second basemen in the AL. This year, things aren't going his way (tough hops, some bloopers) but that doesn't erase how strong of an arm he has nor the range he covers. Gordon is damn good. He could very capably play SS and is every bit as flashy as any other 2B with the exception of BP.
It's a homer pick but you guys need to watch some of the work he does before responding ignorantly with "lolno" or "METRICS > all". Beckham had the metrics on his side last year and hasn't regressed at all this year physically. Numbers may not support that but who cares?
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.
