The 2011 Rawlings Gold Glove Awards winners were announced and here are the recipients:

 

 

CONGRATULATIONS to all the 2011 Gold Glove Winners!

 

 

 

 

Don’t think I didn’t notice that not one New York Yankee won a Gold Glove for the 2011 season, which makes this award lose a lot credibility, as the results seem awfully lopsided.

I will broach this subject in my next post, as how can the AL team with the best record not get at least one nod.

    Although I'm disappointed with no Yankees being selected, the only bad choice on the AL side is Adrian Gonzalez at first base. Show of hands: Anybody think he would have won if he were playing for, say, Kansas City? Or Cleveland? Or even Los Angeles of Anaheim? Ha, thought so!

    • Mike says:

      Gonzalez played an excellent first base this year. He was easily one of the best in the AL.

      I would like to see a show of hands for people who think that Derek Jeter would have won a gold glove last year if he wasn't with the Yankees…

      • Kate says:

        Jeter should not have won last year, but he should have for this season. Adrian Gonzalez is not a better glove than Teixeira….the whole not awarding one GG to a Yankee is ridiculous. Brett Gardner got snubbed…..that is a fact!!

    • Kate says:

      No, no and no……Adrian Gonzalez is not a better glove than Teixeira. It is what it is but for once Jeter actually deserved the award and gets snubbed, but won last season???? Whatever….the last time 3 Red Sox won Gold Gloves in the same year was 32 years (or seasons) ago.

    "which makes this award loss a lot credibility" ….Is this a joke? Would you rather them give Jeter another gold glove that he doesn't deserve? Your team is not built on defense, it's built on offense. In your defense I do think that Gardner had a great shot to win the gold glove and was probably slitted this year.

    "as how can the AL team with the best record not get at least one nod." Because your team has poor defensive metrics. Hopefully voters are looking at more than just fielding percentage and not just handing out awards to someone because they wear blue pinstripes.
