Agreed, Bill James always loved Ozzie and thought he contributed to a lot of things that couldn't be measured. Before he tore up his knee Ozzie was considered to be one of the better defensive shortstops in the league. Oh and he was a three time all star and a gold glove winner. Of course if all you're looking at is offensive numbers then Ozzie was pretty bad and Leury might be up there too but if you consider there to be other aspects to baseball besides offense, then Ozzie and possibly Leury can offer key contributions.

Go Sox!!!
