Best and Worst Team Fielding

We haven’t listed a sort of best and worst team fielding since the end of May so it’s about time.   As before we will sort on unearned runs (UR).  The best teams at fielding will have given up the fewest unearned runs and the worst the most unearned runs.   There are a lot of other theories that make fielding calculations.  Unearned runs is the only metric we know for sure because we can count it and they do exist.   Unearned runs do not count as an earned run against a pitcher but they do count to determine the outcome of a game.

Note: The UR column in the following two tables represents runs above or below team MLB average which stands at this moment at 44.47 URs/Team.
