Re: Gold Glove nominees named....
Phillips not winning is a joke. No one is better on day in day out basis. I don't care if Barney had only two errors. One reason a player doesn't have as many errors is lack of range. I haven't watch Barney enough to know what kind of range he has but I would be surprised if it was equal to Phillips. The dirty little secrect is that a lot of people are turned off to Phillips personality. Give them a reason not to vote for him and some won't. Barney's lack of errors game them that reason. Oh well maybe this will make Phillips more determined next season to be even better.
I don't have a problem with any of the other Reds not winning. Molina is clearly the best catcher in the NL. Bruce had too many mis-plays in the of to warrant consideration. Even though hitting shouldn't be factor it is. Stubbs hitting only about .210 killed his chances of winning. Also just not very many good defensive SS in the NL this season. Cozart should have good chance at this awards next season.
