Some more updates and Harper-related things to track on Fangraphs!

This one is for centerfield defense, for those centerfielders with more than 500 innings logged.  It appears that Harper has a chance to be rated somewhere in Trout's league, defensively.  Note that DRS on the right seems to give Trout a lot of credit for his Home Run saving grabs, but those don't factor into fWAR.  Neat.

I added an age column to the Rookie batting leaders list, because I think it's silly Todd Frazier is still in contention for the ROTY award.  The tide should swing on that one, soon, however, especially now that they're tied in home runs.  Some impressiveness points should factor in, when you're talking about a 19 year old... 

...who has already put up the second greatest season by a teenager.  Ever.  And closing fast.
