Links 11-1-2011: Pedroia wins a Fielding Bible award


Congratulations to Dustin Pedroia, who finished first among all second basemen in this year’s Fielding Bible Awards (expanded results are here). Adrian Gonzalez finished in second place among all first basemen, making the right side of our infield the best in baseball. Those of you holding out for us to sign Albert Pujols, it ain’t happening. You can’t play either of those guys at DH or anywhere else.

Carl Crawford finished eighth in left field, and Jacoby Ellsbury was sixth among centerfielders.

    Nice. And three gold gloves!

      Yeah, the Gold Gloves are nice. But I think I’ve actually grown to consider them as not that meaningful, considering Derek Jeter’s got a mantle full of them, when he should only have gotten a couple.

      Seems like voters are at least getting more informed by the saber metric fielding measures out there, if not downright influenced by them.
