I think it's a shame that 3 CFs all took these Gold Gloves. Considering how Gold Gloves are often used as a benchmark for defensive prowess, Gold Gloves should reflect how each performer performs relative to their position.

I mean, a really excellent SS could finish 2nd in the SS gold glove voting, but would've run away with the 2b voting. Unfortunately, the 2006 Gold Gloves won't have any sort of accurate assesment of who the best fielding CF in the NL was, and it won't tell us at ALL who the best-fielding RFs and LFs were..

It's a damn travesty. This is idiotic. It's not like the outfielders change positions that frequently. How many games this year did any of the winners play at corner outfield spots? Not a single one.

A joke. A damn joke.

This fuels the fire a little more for me as to why I think we should go out and get the O Dog, Orlando Hudson. Switch Phillips to SS, Hudson at 2B. Great DP combo. That drastically improves our IF D up the middle, and neither one of them will hurt us offensively.

As to what I'd give to get Hudson, honestly not sure. I doubt they need LaRue, although it would solve our need to dump payroll and hopefully get us back down to only a 2 headed catching monster.

I'd have Ryan Freel over Cameron in CF any day.

I respectfully disagree. For the most part, anyone who can play centerfield well can play left field well, while the converse is not true. I do recognize that the throw from right field to third base requires arm strength that's not necessary in CF. However, I have no problem with 3 CF's getting the award. Usually, a team's best OF is in center.

I think that the switch from Shortstop to 2B is much tougher than from CF to one of the corners. Derek Jeter has all but admitted that he'd be afraid to play 2B at the major league level. Among other things, he doesn't like turning the double play with his back to the lead runner.
