How/why is baserunning looked at separately...it's offense, include it...moreover, it's 2 categories SB and CS...you can say what you want about GIDP, but that's an uncontrollable circumstance. Secondly, when the hell as anyone ever won an MVP in the MLB based on defense? That's what Gold Gloves are for...box 'em up...
And offense is what silver sluggers are for.
The position you play, and how well you play it, is very important. When Pedroia won was he the best offensive player in the league? He wasn't the best on his own team. Pudge, Tejada, Larkin, etc....there are so many examples.
