Thanksgiving Leftovers: Muddy Chicken Is Fastest Glove

While you're deciding whether to re-heat that slab of Thanksgiving bird or turn it into turkey chili, we have some 'leftovers' of our own. Deep into an inactive off-season, MLB decided to name the 2016 All-Statcast™ team. Not surprisingly, Dustin Pedroia is slotted in at second base as "The Fastest Glove In The East"—combining a comeback offensive season with his signature stellar defense. A couple of other Carmine Hosers got honorable mentions—Jackie Bradley, Jr. in CF and Rick Porcello at pitcher. Oddly, MVP runner-up Mookie Betts wasn't even mentioned. A former Red Sox player did win another spot—David Ross at catcher. You can see the full team HERE.
