Great offense, possibly the best defense in the history of baseball,
I don’t know what to take away from all that, except that they have a good defense, probably one of the best this year, but probably not one of the best all time.
Or put it this way: The 2013 Orioles have fewer holes in their defense than any team I've ever seen or heard about. Their .992 FP only reinforces that point.
How about the '82 Cards, with Hernandez, Herr, Smith and Oberkfell?
Machado and Hardy are legitimately great defenders. There is no one else on the O's roster that I'd put on the short list of best defenders at their position, except possibly Wieters, but that's tough to judge with all that goes into defense for catchers. I don't see how 2 great defenders and a bunch of average gloves puts a team into consideration for best defenses ever.
