Santo played defense......marginally. Played 3B to a clip of a .954 fielding percentage over his career. In 11 of the 13 relevant years he had (season he played at least 100 games) he had 20 or more errors at 3B. Statistically speaking, in almost the same amount of relevant time, Robin Ventura had a .958 fielding percentage. In 1125 less plate appearances, Ventura had just 48 less HRs, 149 less RBI's, 132 less runs scored, the exact same OBP, 33 less BB's, and 27 less 2b's. If you want to compare apples to apples, your Schlubby hero is more like a slightly above replacement level 3B that even as a Sox fan I couldn't argue deserves to sniff the hall.
