re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
Brett Lawrie failed defensively at second coming up in the minors. Find it hard to believe that he can all of a sudden become one of the best defenders in baseball at third. I think the positive defensive metrics are largely due to small sample size. UZR, they say, should only be looked at across 3 years to truly get an accurate gauge of defensive talent. So I think Lawrie is playing slightly over his head, tho I do think he can be a good defender.
