Xander Bogaerts Should Be Diamond

SDS

Xander Boagarts is top 10 in the MLB in offensive WAR, every single player above him is a diamond. In addition SDS gives him 50 defense despite him having a positive dWAR. Like he's not a good glover but he's above 50 defense lol, bronze shield probably at 70 fielding feels correct, at least mid 60s range.

He's also ranked #12 in WAR for batters in fangraphs. Above him are Vlad, Semien, Harper, Tatis, Turner, Marte, Mullins, Soto, Rameriez, Correa, and Muncy... all of them are diamonds.
But perhaps even more criminal are the guys below him. Bryan Reynolds, Aaron Judge, Matt Olson, Altuve, Ohtani, Crawford... all of them are diamonds.
Glad SDS has a roster update coming up to fix this. Only needs a +2 so they should be able to work it out.

SDS

Aaron Judge should be common.

SDS

Him and Devers.

How is Devers one of the most legit AS cards but lost his diamond shield? Plus, I have like 850 Devers to QS when he goes back to diamond. 😄

You can't really compare a SS to a 1B. Their attributes are weighted differently. SS are weighted heavily on Defense and according to the attributes I would say that the 57 fielding and maybe the 59 Reaction is really what is holding him back. Crawford, just as a comparison, has 85 fielding and 90 reaction.

So it is not his offense that is keeping him a gold.

He could still be higher 🤷♂

They have extremely poor fielding as a whole this year. That's the only thing keeping Devers and Bogarts where they are.

Devers went diamond once, he may be able to do it again.

SDS

Should easily be diamond rn based on the stats
