    Not surprised Phillips didn't get it. Phillips was clearly very good, but I haven't exactly seen evidence that he was better than Hudson. For once I don't think they blatantly screwed any of the picks up.

    A bit surprised with Polanco over Aaron Hill.

    Andruw Jones won the Fielding Bible GG for CF, for what it's worth.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I was really hoping Tulowitzki would get it at SS. Not surprised it went to Rollins though.

    No Jeter! Jays should have had both AL MIs, IMO.

    The old saying is usually you have to be good enough to win a GG for a year or two before you get one.

    David Wright? He's good, but a bit erratic. If he's a Gold Glove caliber player, then EE isn't far behind.

    Grady Sizemore defines "adequate" in CF. Now he has a Gold Glove.

    Adequate is a big step up from the worst in the league one Jeter got.

    Lousy choice there, too. How did they miss Granderson? And I'm really sick of I-Rod winning GGs when he doesn't even bother to move to block tough pitches.

    Granderson should have walked away with the award, with Coco Crisp finishing a distant, distant second.
