Reggie Sanders had an extremely well-balanced game. The next table shows his context-neutral, teammate-adjusted career record by factor: batting, baserunning, and fielding.

I wanted to come up with a way to identify players who were above average at everything. What I came up with was to subtract 0.500 from a player's batting, baserunning, and fielding winning percentage - so they're positive if the winning percentage is above 0.500, negative if below - and then multiply the three numbers together*. For players with at least 10 eWins each in batting, baserunning, and fielding, here are the top 30 players in this statistic.
*The product of three numbers will be positive if either all three are positive - which is what I want - or if exactly two of the three are negative. I weeded out these latter players.

One could perhaps refine this by taking some kind of positional averages into account, but even quick and dirty, I think it's a fairly interesting list.
