On this episode of the BSN Rockies Podcast, managing editor Drew Creasman breaks down the recently announced Gold Glove nominees and tumbles down the rabbit hole of trying to figure out if defense in baseball can ever fully be measured.

Naturally, that leads to a larger conversation about the role of statistics in general and the divisions between those in the metrics community and those outside of it. Is bad information better than no information?

Finally, Drew fields some questions about potential rule changes in MLB, most especially the idea of having a fully-automated strike zone.
