If nothing else, the annual Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners remind us that most voters probably don’t actually watch much baseball.  If they did, Derek Jeter would not have taken home the award in 2010.  If Rawlings has accomplished anything, it’s that they have got one thing right.   The additional step of naming finalists for [...]

Barring a statistical collapse by the likes of Andrew McCutchen and David Wright, the possibility of someone from the Cardinals taking home the NL MVP hardware this year seems remote at best.  That does not necessarily mean that one or more players has not earned the right to be mentioned in the MVP debate, but [...]
