E - Error

Error
An fielder records an error when they fail to make a play that they should have made with common effort, and then the opposing offense benefits as a result of such a mis-play.

The error is the most simple defensive statistic, and of course, the most widely used.  Like many other such stats, it lacks the independence from other teammates' performances.  Many errors are given to players that did not correctly catch the ball, yet the ball was not thrown to them in the right manner in the first place.

Errors are the lone statistic used in determining fielding percentage which is the major factor in determining the Gold Glove awards.

  • Daddy: Former MLB exec says Albert Pujols has been lying about his age
    March 04, 2021, 03:41:19 PM
  • Daddy: Pujols is still set to make $30 million this season — which many believe will be his last, though he says he hasn't decided.
    March 04, 2021, 03:42:09 PM
  • Daddy: While recalling that contract, and offers the Marlins sent Pujols, Samson let it slip that the baseball player isn't the age he claims to be.  "We knew when we did the calculations for that deal that we didn’t care about 2019, '20 or '21. It was so far in the future that it didn’t matter,” Samson said. "We knew he’d be unproductive, we knew that he was not the age that he said he was. We had all the information."
    March 04, 2021, 03:43:17 PM
  • Daddy: Samson said, "There is not one person in baseball, not one executive, who believes Albert Pujols is the age that he says he is. The amount of fraud that was going on in the Dominican back in the day, the changing of names, the changing of birthdays, it would blow your mind."
    March 04, 2021, 03:44:25 PM
  • Daddy: Pujols would be three years older than the 41 years old he's listed at currently (considering his birth date of Jan. 16 is accurate), which would theoretically make him 44.
