    Scott Rolen, Brandon Phillips, and Bronson Arroyo win NL Gold Glove Awards

    Per ESPNews.

    Jay Bruce got screwed as predicted.

    It's Rolen eighth (first since 2006), Phillips' second (first since 2008), and Arroyo's first.

    Awesome that 3 Reds got them... but Bruce did get screwed. Awesome work OBM and Chip... 1 minute for the thread, 3 for the sticky.

    Awesome news!

    Bronson Arroyo was completely under the radar. Jay Bruce will get his day.

    NL Central champs, Votto wins the Aaron award, three Gold Glove winners and heavy MVP consideration for Votto?

    Nope. Not dreaming.

    Jay Bruce 2010 UZR: 20.2.
    Shane Victorino UZR: 2.6.
    Carlos Gonzalez UZR: -2.7.

    Yeah, Bruce didn't deserve a gold glove.

    Congrats to the winners. Bruce will get there one day.

    Especially pleased to see Arroyo get one. I'm not sure I've ever seen his defense commended here.

    So is Tulo deserved his as well. He is going to be a very wealthy man come FA. Little surprised CarGo got one, especially over Bruce or Torres.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Maybe Bronson was waiting to see if he won a GG before he agreed to a contract! :

    Bronson totally deserved it. Jay Bruce was a predictable ripoff, but it probably won't be long before he's earning that award year-in and year-out.

    Nice to see Reds players getting well-deserved national recognition. Ironically, the three guys who won GG's are arguably not even the top two defenders on the Reds!
    Go BLUE!!!

    According to Bill James' fielding bible, Arroyo was the best defensive pitcher in the National League, and Jay Bruce was the best defensive right fielder. In other words, it seems like Arroyo actually deserved the award.
