    2010 Fielding Bible (Arroyo and Bruce lead NL at their positions)

    The 2010 Fielding Bible awards are out.

    http://www.billjamesonline.net/field...-votetally.asp

    No Reds won the Fielding Bible award this year, which is handed out to only one player at each spot in the whole league. If you separate it by AL and NL however, both Jay Bruce and Bronson Arroyo lead the way in the NL.


    First Base – Daric Barton, Oakland


    Second Base – Chase Utley, Philadelphia


    Third Base – Evan Longoria, Tampa Bay


    Shortstop – Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado


    Left Field – Brett Gardner, New York Yankees


    Center Field – Michael Bourn, Houston


    Right Field – Ichiro Suzuki, Seattle


    Catcher – Yadier Molina, St. Louis


    Pitcher – Mark Buehrle, Chicago White Sox

    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.
