Drawing on the idea that spawned by long, incomprehensible, and thus not-as-funny-and-illuminating as I'd hoped Gold Glove DH Award, here is a graphical representation of Adam Dunn's Positional Adjustment + Defense (bUZR/150) in left field over the years. I figured I owed it to him given that due to the way FanGraphs does its leader/trailerboards, he probably got jobbed out of a Gold Glove from me this season. Don't worry Adam, you're still in the NL, and you have a similar level of excellence at 1B, so there's always next year... For a larger version, click here.

2008 Gold Gloves for Designated Hitters

At the risk of being called out for spamming, here is my first "official" post at Driveline Mechanics. You can read the full explanation there, but basically, I use Justin Inaz's field+positional adjustment numbers (balanced with bUZR) to see what players would have actually helped their teams more by DHing than by playing the field. Another way of looking at it is as a sabermetric approach whether or not a players is a "natural born DH." You'll have to go there to see the stunning results! Maybe I'll post a poll, as suggested to me by a someone else, as to what the trophy should be: A Gold Glove with hole in the middle? A bust of Greg Luzinski? I personally think each year's winners should get a Hall-of-Fame style bronze plaque based on one of their great fielding moments, as ampled by the introductory picture of the post.
