Miles/Kennedy UZR Rating

Adam Kennedy has become my favorite player to hate so far this year.  However, I genuinely hope that changes being that we have him on the books for two more seasons.  Neither his offense nor his defense have been particularly impressive to me.  It is extremely hard to believe that he has actually saved this team one run with his defense.  There have been multiple times where I've rolled my eyes following an Adam Kennedy defensive opportunity.

Even more surprising to me is that Aaron Miles' defense has cost the birds four runs.  I generally feel pretty confident when a ball is hit in Miles direction and it seems that (more often than not) the guy typically gets the job done.  

Personally, I feel best about the Cards' overall lineup on days when Eckstein takes SS and Miles fills in at 2B.  Does anyone else share the same sentiments?  Perhaps this objective data gives me reason to re-evaluate my subjective opinion.  Or maybe it is that Miles rating is tarnished by his frequent out-of-position SS play recently.  Is there a place to get just Miles' 2B rating?  Also, have other defensive rating systems been released at this point in the season?  I would be interested to see if this trend is consistent across rating systems.

Also, I would be interested to hear anyone else's subjective opinions concerning Miles versus Kennedy.
