Here’s where the numbers don’t match the critics, particularly with the Cardinals, who get bashed for their defense (and have for Malcom Brown Authentic Jersey a few years now). I’m not watching every game, so the eye test is clearly providing a different result than the advanced metrics, which have the Cardinals at plus-12 Defensive Runs Saved, which is 12th in the majors.
