    Re: Gold Glove nominees named....

    Barney strikes me as a Freddy Garcia type of fielder - doesn't make mistakes, can sometimes post gaudy numbers in seasons where the ball finds him a little extra, but rarely makes an outstanding play.

    FWIW, I like his name. Beats the snot out of Joe Smith.

    I'm witchcrafting everybody.

    That should tell us something about the quality of the defense on this ballclub.

    The nominees included SS, 2B, CF. And the catcher is outstanding. Great up the middle defense.

    Absence of any winners is annoying, but less important.
    Don't forget two others who could've easily been nominated. Rolen & Cueto.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I can't believe that they gave a purple dinosaur the gold glove over BP. What's this world coming to?

    My favorite line from that article:

    "Yep, that's Ryan. He's an artist at shortstop. He's beautiful to watch play defense. There seems absolutely no way that anyone could miss this. J.J. Hardy is a good defensive shortstop too, but he's Salieri. Ryan is Mozart."

    Joe P is, by far, the best sports writer in America.

    No doubt. The Salieri comment put a huge smile on my face.

    I like his writing, but I don't find it impressive that a sportswriter can recall the movie version of history.

    The movie itself is history. It's one of the best of all-time.

    Historically, Salieri was considered a brilliant composer in his day and his chief rival would have been Mozart along with other composers. They had a good relationship from what I understand and Salieri wasn't psycho like in the movie. Technically, Joe was right in a way. Still made me smile.
