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 [...]
