Gold Glove Nominations   Leave a comment

For whatever it’s worth… here’s my Gold Glove choices, as opposed to the actual picks. I’m starting with the NL first because they always get shafted by the media. (Note: there will not be any explanations, but know that my numbers are heavily influenced by a range of defense statistics that measure range, arm strength, and consistency. Also, they will be influenced in a small part by HOLY-CRAP-DID-HE-JUST-MAKE-THAT-PLAY plays.)

National League

P- Adam Wainwright (Actual: Wainwright)

C- Yadier Molina, with an honorable mention for Russell Martin (Molina)

Glove? I don't need no stinkin' glove.

1B- Albert Pujols (Adrian Gonzalez)

2B- Chase Utley (Orlando Hudson)

Boy got hops... for a white guy.

3B- Ryan Zimmerman (Zimmerman)

Zimmerman really wanted to win that Web Gem crown.

SS- Troy Tulowitzki (Jimmy Rollins)

OF- Matt Kemp (Kemp)

I don't even care about his defense... cuz Kemp will eventually be a .300 hitter with 30 HR, 100 RBI, 100 R, and 30 SB. I guarantee it.

OF- Michael Bourn (Bourn)

OF- Jayson Werth, with an honorable mention for Nyger Morgan (Victorino)

American League

P- Mark Buehrle (ACTUAL: Buehrle)

C- Gerald Laird (Joe Mauer)

Dude protects the plate.

1B- Kendry Morales (Mark Teixeira)

2B- Placido Polanco (Polanco)

3B- Evan Longoria (Longoria)

SS- Elvis Andrus (Derek Jeter)

Elvis and Dork Elvis work in sports in the same state.

OF- Franklin Gutierrez (Torii Hunter)

Gutierrez is a former Dodger.

OF- B.J. Upton (Adam Jones)

OF- Nelson Cruz (Ichiro Suzuki)
