UZR vs Positioning
How does UZR take into account superior defensive positioning?
Ibanez's catch of Escobar's potential double, in the 6th inning, made me think about this. Dick was saying what a good catch it was for a 42yo. And it was certainly out of his "zone," but the catch was 100% due to good positioning. So does Ibanez get credit for a "out of zone" catch or does UZR account for this?

From what I remember, UZR uses a very, very simplistic method of accounting for shifts. If the defense is deemed to be in a shift, the play is ignored (or something like that). When deemed not to be in a shift, defenders assumed to be in standard/typical defensive zone."Maybe you could go grab a bat and ball… and learn something. Maybe you will get it."
