The AL gold gloves were announced today and as usual there is plenty of controversy.
C. Joe Mauer
1B. Mark Teixeira
2B. Placido Polanco
3B. Evan Longoria
SS. Derek Jeter
P. Mark Buehrle
Teixera, Longoria, and Buehrle deserved to win. Jeter, Suzuki, and Hunter won because of history. Mauer is a good catcher but I don't think he's the best. Polanco and Jones are both good defenders but others should have won it over them.
I don't know how many people actually take these things seriously anyway but we await the NL gold gloves anyway.
