I don't know why everyone keeps saying "you can't just look at the stats" when I was discussing the stat, and not the actual impact. I'm in favour of using the actual impact as the criterion, rather than the suggested statistic.
And I'm certainly not coming at you personally.... I just wanted to weigh in on the idea since I know that some of the Bargs supporters have had their heads buried in the sand for along time when it's come to how mind-bogglingly bad his D really is.

Yes, the team has sucked defensively as a whole for a long time.... but he's certainly been worst of the bunch IMO (outside of a gimpy Jose).
