Defense may not be the most entertaining part of a baseball game, but it is certainly important.
We tend to only recognize when players make outstanding defensive plays, and fans will always criticize players for making defensive mistakes.
The following slides will show you truly the best defensive team in baseball based on a number of factors.
The methodology is as follows: Teams were ranked from No. 1 to 30 based on statistics from the 2010 season. The lower the better.
The categories considered were UZR, stolen bases allowed, total zone (TZ) and Gold Gloves. One point was deducted for each Gold Glove winner and two were deducted for each Fielding Bible winner.
This difference is because the Fielding Bible award is based on more quantitative information.
