    You're right, I suppose that's close enough.

    Honestly, I'm not sure. The way I read the explanation, it sounded like what I said. Try reading Fangraphs' explanation of it:

    That's odd. Isn't it based on the total runs you prevented/allowed over the average?

    It's relative to each position in the league, yes. But 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.
