The M’s Defense
My first post of the day over at FanGraphs is dedicated to looking at the M’s defense, which has been the best in baseball by a mile this year. No one’s even close. The M’s have been 84 runs above an average defensive club this year, which is why their mediocre pitching staff (9th in the AL in FIP) can lead the league in ERA.
We’ve talked about it all year, but in case you had any doubt, this is the best defensive team the Mariners have ever put on the field. This is one of the best defensive teams anyone has ever put on the field.
