Reports are that when the award is announced tomorrow Mark Buehrle will win his second Gold Glove. Mark may have won the award on Opening Day when he ran into foul ground and flipped the ball to Paul Konerko to complete a great play. From that day on I think the award was his to lose.
This is a nice award, but I would venture to guess that Mark would rather be hoisting a World Series trophy. Maybe he can do both next season. Mark is one of my favorite players so naturally I am thrilled. The way the awards usually work is that the previous winner is hard to unseat. Maybe Mark can keep winning these now until he retires.
Couple this with the news that Joe Morgan and John Miller are out at ESPN and it is a good day for baseball.
Edit: The best part about this was that it was leaked based on comments by Mark’s wife on her Facebook page. Isn’t this how we find everything out now?
