    Honestly, despite being a card, really wanted to see Yadier Molina get it. Thought he deserved it.

    that's not a bad list if you remove Ausmus and Vizquel.

    Pujols deserves it. He has defintely evolved into a very nice fielding 1st baseman.

    I was hoping Ryan Freel would get one in the outfield....guess he doesn't have a recognizable name.

    It would have been cool for Freel to get one - but the amount of time might have had something to do with it in the voters' minds as well (54 CF, 42 RF, 13 LF), as well as his 5 errors in right. I am not saying that is right at all - I am just trying to get into the disturbed minds of the voters

    Ausmus isn't undeserving. Initially I was like "What the .....!?" But Ausmus was tied with Molina for the league lead in defensive win shares (8.3). He also leads Mo-Mo in most of the non-throwing catcher stats (fielding %, PB, errors, etc.). The one who really got jobbed here was Everett. He lead all short stops in the NL with 8.6 winshares from the SS position. The next closest was Furcal at almost 2 wins less (6.8). He laps Vizquel (4.6). Also, Andruw Jones is earning those 2-4 gold gloves on reputation alone that alot of GG'rs get towards the end. Houston may have gotten jobbed out of 2 gold gloves, as Willie Taverez had 6.3 win shares, though Pierre of the Cubs was the true victim at 7 win shares and no gold glove. I guess 2 out of 3 in the outfield isn't too bad (Cameron & Beltran were definately deserving), but Jones at only 5.0 win shares won on reputation. D.GOOCH

    Have they always just picked the 3 best outfielders? I thought they always picked one from each position..

    The Gold Gloves don't differentiate among positions in the outfield. There have always been 3 GG outfield winners. D.GOOCH

    All-in-all not a bad list.

    I'll just note right here that Mike Cameron's having himself a nice career. Was the Jr. trade really the Curse of the Cambino?

    I said this over in RedsLive, but I really think we should make an effort to go out and get the O Dog, Orlando Hudson. Phillips at SS and Hudson at 2B I think would be one of the best DP combos in the game. Not sure what we'd have to give up to get him, but I would think that would really solve a lot of defensive issues up the middle.

    No way Omar should have won the GG over Adam Everett. Everett is head and shoulders above everyone else at short.

    I've always had a problem with the outfield gold gloves not being awarded by position. Much the same as the all-star ballot just lists oufield instead of center field etc.. I know it's not exactly the same but it is kind of like just giving all the infield awards to the short stops.
