Best Left Side (Third and short): Atlanta Braves (+29) Yunel Escobar has been a defensive machine this season, saving 21 runs on his own. The problem for the Braves is that Escobar has since be traded. Alex Gonzalez, his replacement, should be able to pick up most that slack.

http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/insider/news/story?id=5386472 Believe it or not, Chipper is actually playing some pretty good D over at the hot corner this year. I hope Alex Gonzalez' D is as advertised, because Yunel sure was one hell of a defender - mental lapses and all.
