$26 or $27. He's certainly capable of a 40 HR+ year, but the profile doesn't speak to an elite AVG.

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Rhys Hoskins with a price of $27. What do you think?

The top 10 in most errors (and their unearned runs allowed) were Cards(69), Phillies(63), Rangers(65), White Sox(77), Brewers(53), Pirates(56), Orioles(68) and Cubs(47), and Blue Jays(60).

Arizona had 39.

Thanks for the guide to Defensive Efficiency Ratio. Now the question for the 2019 draft is how to accurately estimate offseason changes in a MLB team's defense in the quest for undervalued starting pitchers. I fear that we may be influenced more by pronouncements from GM's ("defense is a major priority") and fielding reputations (a 2013 Gold Glove) than by the hard-to-measure realities of defensive upgrades. But if one could figure it out accurately, it seems about the best way to assemble a staff of starting pitchers on the cheap.

I agree with Walter regarding errors and defensive effectiveness.  It's a relatively old statistic, but Defensive Efficiency Ratio is essentially a team statistic for BABIP.  

1 - ((H + ROE - HR) / (PA - BB - SO - HBP - HR)).

The teams that had the lowest rate of turning batted balls into outs were the Orioles, Phillies, Blue Jays, Padres, Royals, Rangers, Twins, Yankees, Cardinals, and Reds in reverse order.

Teams ranked by fielding percentage (which measures errors assigned) has a completely different list of teams, although the Phillies are still one to the bottom.  That helps the team ERA, but it sure doesn't help getting outs.

I don't have the stats to back this up, but my impression is that a bad defense leads to fly balls to drop as doubles that are not counted as errors because the OF didn't get close enough to touch the ball. Same thing for the Jeter-style shortstop who dives and just misses the single into left field.

I don't that much of a difference because a worse defense usually means more errors and more unearned runs.

With just an average left fielder, he Phillies would have given up 24 fewer runs, according to Defensive Runs Daves in the new Handbook.

With help, the inadequate help of other left fielders, the Phillies get -27 for LF on the Team Defense page. The right fielders get -16, the center fielders -9. The shortstops get -23. The catchers get -10. The pitchers -- the mistreated pitchers -- mistreat themselves to the tune of -20.

Every position is a minus. Even the shifts hurt (-10; next worst shifting score is -4 and 27 teams come out ahead of the game in their shifts, topped by the Diamondbacks with +39). It all adds up to -146 defensive runs for the Phils last year.

It is speculated on A.J. Pollock's page that the Diamondbacks' ERA would have been 4.70 instead of 3.72 with average defense. By the same logic, the Phillies' ERA would have been in the neighborhood of 3.30, best in the league, instead of 4.14.

Single, double and very big fly to lead the Fightins past the Brew Crew.

With the next big fly, he joins the 10-homer club, much later than many of us expected.
