Ichiro Wins GG, Gutierrez Does Not
The Gold Gloves have been announced, and predictably, Ichiro won one and Franklin Gutierrez did not.
You should not care. These are about as meaningful as the teen choice awards. The people who vote on them don’t really put much thought into it, nor do they really know what they’re doing. They don’t represent defensive ability in any real way, shape, or form.
It’s a broken system. You should feel worse for Rawlings that they attach their name to this than for Death To Flying Things, who most people recognize as a superb defensive player.
