Lee, first of all let me say that as a Cub fan, watching Bill Buckner for several years, I concluded that he was an outstanding first baseman as well, particularly given the ankle problems, although he did strongly prefer the 3-1 play to the 3 unassisted.

I wanted to see if your metric shows something similar, or if it may be an artifact of some sort.
