Read the trade rumour thread about three pages back. It became a question.

I read it...hell, I was involved in the discussion.  I don't recall this being a question...

Well people were dumping on Zimmerman and Lind both. Some seemed to think the throwing errors made the debate. This survey would prove that they don't. Those errors are dice you wanna roll.

Someone said Zimm was good at First Base.  I mentioned that he was "above average" at 25th of 25 MLB qualifiers with 11 errors. 

No idea what you are going to prove here...there's nothing to prove...and there is no debate.  The facts speak for themselves...

They sure do.

If he could throw normally he'd be in the Gold Glove discussion.

Ha! He's last in the majors for assists by first basemen, he's getting to fewer balls.

His next throwing error will set the MLB record for first basemen. He's historically bad.

I have a great idea, let's trade for a pitcher who is heavily reliant on groundball defense to be effective!

This trade has made me so salty. Not that it was a bad deal player wise, just that the "big closer piece" was a guy who is basically Ronnie Belisario.

Isn't that what fans do? Are you not critical or have opinions of what the team does?

Oh I do. But Zimmerman’s play this year is very low on my list.

If you're not first, you're last.
