VIDEO: 25 minutes of Andrelton Simmons defensive highlights

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

According to dWAR, the defensive component of Baseball-Reference's WAR, Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons just has the best defensive season in baseball history. His 5.4 dWAR -- meaning he helped the Braves win more than five games in 2013 with his glovework alone -- is better than Ozzie Smith's best season (4.7), better than Mark Belanger's best season (4.4), better than everyone's best season. It's no surpise he won the Gold Glove.

Thankfully, the internet -- specifically YouTube user kev -- put together a video of Simmons' top defensive highlights from this past season. It's 25 (!) minutes long. Enjoy:

So much fun.
