Jeter : Gold Glove :: Kim Jong Il : Nobel Peace Prize
We all know that most of the award voting in baseball is a joke, but is there anything more ridiculous than the Gold Glove awards? They gave Rafael Palmiero one when he'd played less than 30 games there and was a DH.
Now they award Jeter with another one, when not only do the defensive metrics say the opposite, but even with the naked eye it's readily apparent that Jeter's future away from the shortstop position is coming quickly.
He's obviously lost more than a step and these voters can't see past the intangibles.
Cano and Teix were among the deserving, though.
