I'm very happy that Andrew McCutchen hit well enough to win this year's National League Gold Glove Award in center field. I hope he continues hitting well enough throughout his career that he can accumulate several more of these prestigious defensive awards.
(I know I'm being cynical, but that's pretty much how the Gold Gloves are awarded and since the Pirates' collapse will keep McCutchen out of the upper tier of the MVP discussion this year, I suppose I'm happy to see that he won even a dumb award because it means someone else was paying attention to the great season that he had, even if they're recognizing him for an aspect of his game that he's certainly the weakest part of his game by a pretty wide margin.)
I am not sure how they award it, but I know a nasty attitude and the inability to throw gimpy runners out at home won’t stand in the way of getting 12 Gold Gloves.
BTW, didn’t Cutch also win the Silver Slugger this year?
...and then there's Mike Trout, who apparently isn't Adam Jones' equal in center--and of course, there's no way that the MVP voters will get all starry-eyed about a Triple Crown winner. Trout's probably hoping he just doesn't get screwed over for Miss Congeniality.
