The Tampa Bay Rays manage to cobble together a pretty good bullpen every year, on about the same money the Dodgers are paying Brandon League.

I'm sure MLB managers and players appreciate fielding metrics on some level, as most if not all are aware that traditional fielding statistics miss too much of the picture.

It's much easier to mis-identify who is/isn't a good fielder, than it is to be confused about a good/bad hitter or pitcher.

This is why old-school will be receptive to advanced defensive metrics. It makes their job easier with less headaches, for an award that very few people actually care about.
