I could have used the SHARE function on each table, but I was in a hurry. If I had used SHARE, the table would definitely look nicer.

As far as LF, I agree that Pierre was really good for them in '09. However, Manny has missed games this year as well, and he was just as bad last year as he's been this year... The big difference is in Manny's replacements -- like you said, Pierre was a good defender (+3 by +/-, +4 by TotalZone) in Manny's stead last year, but this year his understudies have been Reed Johnson, Xavier Paul, and Garret Anderson, who have been somewhere between average (+0 by +/-) and really bad (-6 TotalZone). So that's another factor you can point to for why the Dodgers are so much worse defensively this year than in '09.

With Ramirez suspended 50 games last year. They got to have pierre out there. Now that hurt offensively, but Manny is scary (in a bad way) out there in LF.

Maybe that's just a bunch of rounding errors adding up, but it doesn't look right. By definition, the total HAS to be 0. That discrepancy won't help convert the many people who have no faith in modern defensive stats.
