I don't know if these are the right guys or not, but they look better than the AL group.
   2. Danny Posted: November 11, 2009 at 06:21 PM (#3384987)
Utley, Cameron, and Nyjer Morgan seem like the glaring omissions.

I am glad Zimmerman won. He is fantastic with the glove.

No Pujols?

Greg Maddux was robbed.

If this is true, I concur.

Utley, Cameron, and Nyjer Morgan seem like the glaring omissions.
Re Morgan, he not only switched teams, but outfield positions. I doubt there have been many Gold Gloves issued to players in those categories. From what I saw of Morgan in center, if he's back at prime condition and stays healthy in 2010, he may well be a Gold Glove contender.

I had a dream last night that, not only did Zack Greinke not win the Cy Young Award, some dude named Miguel Gonzalez who pitched for the Tigers won it, and the Gold Glove, and the MVP. It was a weird dream.

Jimmy Rollins is not a great fielder. Other than that, this list looks to be very reasonable.
   8. Ravecc Posted: November 11, 2009 at 07:05 PM (#3385075)
Victorino isn't a good fielder either.

Utley is.
   9. greenback calls it soccer Posted: November 11, 2009 at 07:11 PM (#3385084)
No Pujols?

It's bad form for me to criticize Pujols, but his defense early in the season left something to be desired. Gonzalez is pretty good anyway.

If you had told me a Cardinals pitcher would win the Gold Glove, I would've said it had to be Pineiro. Wainwright's name is coming out of nowhere.

All that and MLB's first Hispanic manager, too. Pretty impressive guy.

GGs v. Fielding Bible Award winners:

P - Adam Wainwright (#17)
C - Yadier Molina (#1)
1B - Adrian Gonzalez (#2 Pujols)
2B - Orlando Hudson (#2 Utley)
3B - Ryan Zimmerman (#1)
SS - Jimmy Rollins (#4 (or 3) Wilson, Tulowitzki, Escobar)
OF - Shane Victorino (#7 CF Bourn, Gwynn, Cameron, Beltran, Young, Rasmus)
OF - Matt Kemp (#8 CF)
OF - Michael Bourn (#1 CF)

As greenback said, Wainwright's name is coming out of nowhere.
Pineiro was #2 in the NL behind Santana.
   12. Tripon Posted: November 11, 2009 at 07:25 PM (#3385100)
Gwynn didn't get playing time until he was traded to the Padres, Beltran's been out for half of the season. Rasmus was constantly benched for Rick Ankiel, and Chris Young Jr. was sent to Triple-A for at least a month.

Victorino, Kemp, and Bourn at least played for the whole season. You can't take partial seasons for guys like Beltran, or Gwynn, and claim they should win a season award like the Gold Glove.

From Kensai of memoriesofkevinmalone.com


One of my projects is to compile edited out. One of edited out the gold glove voting for both NL and AL. Kemp had 72 votes, Victorino had 70, and Bourn had 31. 4th-6th place were Francoeur, Cameron, and Morgan respectively.


Second Basemen
Hudson, Orlando (50)
Utley, Chase (17)
Phillips, Brandon (17)
Eckstein, David (7)
Matsui, Kaz (5)
Sanchez, Freddy (2)

Outfielders
Kemp, Matt (72)
Victorino, Shane (70)
Bourn, Michael (31)
Francoeur, Jeff (25)
Cameron, Mike (24)
Morgan, Nyjer (19)

Tripon: I agree with you on the partial season issue, I was just posting their opinions. Morgan was traded, as was mentioned previously, and also missed the last six weeks of the season.
   15. salvomania Posted: November 11, 2009 at 07:45 PM (#3385138)
SS - Jimmy Rollins (#4 (or 3) Wilson, Tulowitzki, Escobar)


I thought Brendan Ryan rated very highly at SS---second in the majors behind Wilson, at least in one system.
   16. Dewey, Soupuss Not Doomed to Succeed Posted: November 11, 2009 at 07:47 PM (#3385145)
Francoeur, Jeff (25)

Oh, that would have been so awesome if Francoeur had won.
   17. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: November 11, 2009 at 08:05 PM (#3385176)
People will insist on trying to pretend he's good at something.
   18. jwb Posted: November 11, 2009 at 08:18 PM (#3385198)

Whiffed on him. FB has him between Tulowitzki and Escobar for NL SS. Damn those three martini breakfasts.

#8 "Victorino isn't a good fielder either."

I think that overstates the case. He may not be GREAT, nor may he be one of the top three in the NL, but I think he qualifies as "good"....
   20. flournoy Posted: November 11, 2009 at 08:23 PM (#3385207)
Brendan Ryan does have a nicer mustache than any Gold Glove winner.
   21. esseff Posted: November 11, 2009 at 09:14 PM (#3385293)
Confirmed. The leaked list is accurate.
   22. TerpNats Posted: November 11, 2009 at 09:38 PM (#3385333)
Now that Zimmerman has won, I was wondering whether any Washington Senators ever won Gold Gloves.

If they saved more runs than guys who played the whole season, why not?

Earl Battey of the original Senators appears to be the only one. Eddie Brinkman won one after he left the second Senators team and was playing for Detroit. Jim Kaat, of course, won a string of 'em after the original Senators became the Twins.

Sample size, perhaps. I assume you are talking about UZR/150, for instance, which is a rate stat, in the sense that it is adjusted to 150 games.

And when the 1960 Gold Glove winners were announced, Battey was likely an ex-Washington player, since the original AL Senators announced their move to the Twin Cities (with a new Senators team to take its place) on Oct. 28. So this is the first time Washington fans can really celebrate having a Gold Glove winner.
   27. Chris Needham Posted: November 12, 2009 at 02:06 AM (#3385719)
... and of course, being the backwater, incompetently run franchise they are, instead of celebrating their star player and promoting the hell out of it, they stomp all over it with the news about the return of Interim Jim Riggleman.

Yawn.

I'm more annoyed at them bigfooting themselves than them bringing Riggles back... though both are signs of their dysfunction.
   28. PreservedFish Posted: November 12, 2009 at 02:17 AM (#3385728)
1B - Adrian Gonzalez (#2 Pujols)
2B - Orlando Hudson (#2 Utley)


This is interesting. The famous guy lost twice.
