It's not a popularity contest. (I assume you were being sarcastic.)

Jeter sucks defensively now, just like A-Rod has always sucked defensively.

Jeter wasn't even in the Top-20 among Shortstops.

Interesting that Laynce Nix made the list a couple years ago. Actuall he was 6th last year for LF.

More evidence of how Bruce got robbed for a G.G. Maybe if he played center, as that seems to be the only outfield position in that vote.

Do you think that the outfield voting should be based on position rather than just 3 outfielders?

Yes.

We don't give a Left-side of the infield GG or a Right-side of the infield GG, or even an all-infield GG. First Basemen and Third Basemen would never win. Shortstops, like CenterFielders would win most GG's.

Also, the center field is played completely different from the right and left field.

I wouldnt say Jeter sucks. He doesnt have great range but there is more to defense than that.

Awesome...

Both because of the title of the article, and what could happen to defensive stats in the very near future.

Yes, no question. Left field isnt center isnt right. SS isnt 2'nd. 3'rd isnt
1'st.
