    Gold Glove nominees named....

    http://mlb.sbnation.com/2012/10/29/3...ists-announced

    Votto, Phillips, Cozart, Stubbs, Bruce and Arroyo all named.

    IMO the biggest snub is Ryan Hanigan.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Re: Gold Glove nominees named....

    Got a few bizarre nominees in there - Aramis Ramirez, Martin Prado, Andre Ethier, A.J. Pierzynski and Brandon Inge. Carlos Gomez and Chris Young are notable omissions.

    Most loaded position is AL SS. All three of those guys are dynamite.

    Ryan Braun???? He's terrible out there, even for a LF.

    Completely disagree. He was rough out there when he first switched to the position, but he's become a fairly good LF. He has some range, gets decent reads on the ball, takes good routes and has a solid arm. I wouldn't give him a GG, but I'd say the same for almost everyone who plays LF. The days when you could hope for Braun to do something goofy on a flare to LF are long gone.

    FYI: The Reds have the most players named to the nominee list this year out of all the teams in MLB.

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    I'm guessing Votto and Phillips are virtually sure-things, with both Stubbs and Cozart as distinct possibilities. Arroyo may make it, but he won it last year; so, no, not this year, IMO. Bruce-- notsomuch.

    Re: Gold Glove nominees named....

    For what it's worth, these are most all the catching stats I see on ESPN.com

    Fielding %
    McCann .998
    Yadi .997
    Hanigan .995

    Passed Balls
    Posey 2
    Hanigan 3
    Montero 5

    SB allowed
    Hanigan 34
    Yadi 38
    Montero 44

    Caught Stealing
    Posey 38
    tied for 6th Hanigan 32

    CS %
    Hanigan .485
    Yadi .479
    Montero .421

    Catchers ERA
    Hanigan 3.05
    Ellis 3.33
    McCan 3.35
    Posey 3.52

    And Ryan didn't get into the top 3?!? Like I said, totally ROBBED! Personally I think he should've been the prohibited favorite except for the fact that they'll automatically give it to Molina. But in pretty much EVERY facet of the game defensively, Hanigan was the best in the NL. BY FAR.

    Re: Gold Glove nominees named....

    Brandon Phillips seems to think that he won't win. Yesterday, on Twitter, he posted this:
    Brandon Phillips‏@DatDudeBP: My 2012 ⚾ Season/Postseason was GOOD... but NOT GOOD enough: No #AllStar + No #GoldGlove + No #SilverSlugger + No #WSRing = #MOTIVATION
    A lot of folks think Darwin Barney may win 2nd base GG this year. Not that I agree, but just sayin....

    If Phillips doesn't win the silver slugger, who would? Neil Walker? Seriously asking.

    Wouldn't be shocked if the Reds get shut out on GG award. Or maybe one winner.

    Hanigan was absolutely robbed.

    Phillips has a shot, but Barney could win it.

    Votto could win it, but the long injury may hurt him.

    Arroyo may have the best chance on the team.

    I don't expect Stubbs, Cozart, or Bruce to win.

    I think the real achievement here is Cozart being a finalist. Well deserved, the rookie really came up big as an all around SS this season, despite OBP problems. SS is the key defensive position on the ball field, Zack being a finalist there is terrific for him.

    Hanigan should have been nominated but he was not the best in the NL by far. Molina caught 1161 innings compared to Hanigans 879 innings, which is a huge part of why A. Hanigan wasn't nominated and B. why it's hard to compare the two's stats. Molina led all of catchers in baseball in defensive runs saved as well. He won another Fielding Bible Award. I don't see how the two are even comparable on defense. Molina was by far the best defensive catcher in baseball this year, if you take the amount of innings he caught into the equation.

    I do question though why Ruiz was nominated and not Hanigan. Hanigan caught more innings and had more defensive runs saved than Ruiz. That is where the snub is, in my opinion.

    Yadi was the best defensive catcher in the league this year.

    For the record, I have zero amount of butt hurt that Hanigan wasn't nominated for the award.
