    According to mlb.com, the are 1st in all of mlb in fielding percentage. Iglesias helps a lot. Range isn't bad either. This is a good team folks.

    I'm sure he helps, but there are 17 SS's with a 1.000 fielding percentage.  And we're actually 12th in fielding efficiency, 13th in the AL in putouts, and dead last in assists.

    Which is mostly to say, there are no meaningful stats yet.

    Fldg% has to be one of the worst stats to judge D by.

    Besides, we should have at least one more error on the play Iggy made and threw a grounder to Naps. Naps missed it, but the runner would clearly have been out. NY scorer: no error.

    Considering the conditions I don't think that was an error. He was sitting down when throwing right, from SS. Something like that. 30 degree temperature. 

    The Redsox are also 5th in the majors in strikeouts, reducing the putout and assist opportunities. This is a good defensive team. Salty, Napoli and  Gomes are the only slouches and they don't play all the games. We have good fielders at most of the important defensive positions.

    Without question , this is an excellent defensive lineup. One of the best in years.
