And no Konerko? What's wrong with these people? How could they forget the greatest defensive first baseman ever?

"I can't imagine any reason short of an emergency for playing Frank at first base."

The wit and wisdom (or lack thereof) of Jerry Manuel on full display once again.

"I was robbed! What do you mean I can't win a gold glove in the AL? I'm the best defensive SS ever. That fact alone should give me every gold glove until the end of time. Heck most day, I do the job of the 3B and 2B also. That means I get 6 gold gloves a year. 3 positions, 2 leagues. I've got mad prop mutliplication skillz to go with my defensive prowess. If there was a gold glove for basic math, I'd win that too..."

What does Buehrle have to do to get noticed? All his numbers
were better than Mussina's.

It is the Gold Glove for a pitcher, no realy cares. Mike has won it several times and hasn't commited an error this season so he gets the nod.

Pitching for the Yankees would probably help.

I think Buehrle is every bit as good as Mussina (or any other pitcher I've ever seen, for that matter) at fielding his position - but his pick-off move is what sets him apart. Teams don't even try to run on Buehrle. That makes him the best defensive pitcher in the league.

He is a lefty.

Buehrle didn't commit any errors either this year and I think he at least deserves some consideration instead of Mussina who won it for the 6th time. There were 10 starting pitchers this year that didn't commit an error.

Yes but if a guy has a track record and performs well out there, he gets it.

Let's not forget that this is the RAWLINGS' Golden Glove award. I believe they determine who the winners will be. I don't know what make of glove Buehrle uses but, it helps if it's a Rawlings.
I wonder what make of glove Palmeiro wore when he last won the award and only played ~ 30gms at first.

First awarded in December 1957 by the Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, the Gold Glove Award honors the top fielders at each position in each league. Honorees, originally selected by a panel of distinguished sportswriters, were chosen by fellow players starting in 1958. Since 1965, managers and coaches have decided the winners.

Beacuse of the subjective nature of the voting, the awards have often been criticized for honoring players based on reputation rather than statistics. Perhaps the most egregious example was the Gold Glove awarded in 1999 to the Rangers' Rafael Palmeiro, who had played just 28 games at first base and had just been named the league's outstanding DH.

ouch..NL gold gloves were announced today. Maddux's 13 year streak ended because teammate Mike Hampton won it.

You mean awards in baseball are often politicized and don't always go to the most deserving candidate? Say it ain't so!
