The ESPN StatsInfo blog should already be on your reading list as it provides outstanding information throughout the year. Today's column has this factiod: "Baseball Info Solutions does video review of every play of every game, tagging plays into more than 30 categories of Good Fielding Plays. Pena was the 2011 leader in the category most pertinent to first basemen: Handling Difficult Throws. Pena was credited with 58 instances of handling a throw that was either in the dirt or close to pulling him off the bag, 13 more than anyone else in baseball. That’s the most by any first baseman in a season since BIS started charting the stat in 2004. " Read the link to see what else Mark Simon has to say about Pena as there is some bad with the good.
