“Simmons only comparable to himself”

More well-deserve raves for Andrelton, this time from Howard Megdal of Sports on Earth:

Put it this way: if Simmons merely equals his 2013 defensive prowess in 2014, he’ll have accumulated more defensive value that Jimmy Rollins has in his entire career, and will have done so in roughly 20 percent of the innings. And this is not a knock on Rollins. It’s representative of how Simmons is only comparable to himself in the recent era. His UZR/150 is 25.2. No one else, since 2012, is as high as 10.
