As of now, UZR is the most reliable fielding statistic, or so I believe. Because it is based on a plus/minus system, is the entire league UZR supposed to equal zero?

Originally posted by SamtheBravesFan View PostBut I don't think if you, say, add up all the shortstop UZRs that you'd get zero. I don't think it works like that."Allen Sutton Sothoron pitched his initials off today."1920s article

In fact, if you add up all the UZR runs from every SS in 2011 you get .1, which is about as close as you can get to zero with all the rounding going on. When you sum up all fielders you get .2.46 wins to match last year's total
