Teixeira and Cano win Gold Gloves

The Rawling Gold Glove Awards were announced today and Robinson Cano has won his second award for his work this season at second base and Mark Teiseira won his fifth for his play at first base. The announcement gave the Yankees two of the nine American League positions.

Taking a quick look at the list, the American League seems free of disputable picks this season and Cano and Teixeira certainly seemed to deserve the honors.The only possible bone of contention might be at shortstop where J.J. Hardy won his first Gold Glove. A quick look at the comments below the announcements shows that many thought Brendan Ryan should have won the award. But Hardy’s numbers are rock solid and a case can certainly be made that he deserved the award.

  1. I don't disagree with the choice of Adam Jones in CF, but I don't really agree with it either. He's certainly more than worthy of the award and congratulations to him for winning, but if I had a vote it would've been for Trout. Dude's a walking highlight reel.

  2. The gold gloves lost all relevance when Pameiro won while playing a total of 20 games at first base.
