ADR (Aggregate Defensive Rating)


So if I didn't waste enough time on Fangraphs, they just enhanced player pages with ADR (Aggregate Defensive Rating). Don't like UZR? Not a fan of Total Zone? Not hip to the Fielding Bible's DRS? - How about an aggregate of all three?

This simple integer value (with its included range of error) takes the onus off of one metric combines it and places it back on all three systems.

Below is a list of the nominal Red Sox starters and a few other interesting players looking at ADRs and their ADR average (Yes an average of an aggregate@!) over the course of the last three seasons.

Player Pos. 10 09 08       AVG
Pedroia  2B 6 10 10 8.67
Youkilis 1B 3 7 2 4.00
Gonzalez 1B 4 10 0 4.67
Crawford LF 14 18 15 15.67
Ellsbury CF 1 -8 5 -0.67
Drew RF 3 8 0 3.67
Scutaro SS -4 7 9 4.00
Lowrie SS -2 1 6 1.67
   
Beltre 3B 11 14 17 14.00
Jeter SS -10 4 -3 -3.00
Hunter CF -2 6 -6 -0.67
Longoria 3B 14 18 10 14.00

 

So what does this tell us that we didn't already know? Not much

- Crawford is a veritable God in LF

- Pedroia is a very good defensive 2B man

- Ellsbury is a bit below average defensive CFer

- Jeter sucks at SS (and has for some time)

Enjoy
