The Angels' Erick Aybar took home the AL Gold Glove for shortstop.

 

Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox trios lead Gold Glove winners - ESPN


This year the awards ceremony was broadcast on ESPN2, which is a first. Though those who tuned in to watch at 10 Eastern got to saw Toledo and Northern Illinois's Arena League game.

No Indian won a gold glove, as expected. Jack Hannahan, had he played the entire season at third base, should have been a finalist, but Adrian Beltre would have won anyway. Asdrubal Cabrera was named a finalist, probably due to his breakout season at the plate, but Erick Aybar took home the award. In the AL, each of the winners had a good offensive season, which may have been a coincidence.

This year the outfield Gold Gloves were given out to each outfield position, instead of the three awards given to the best three center fielders, which I like; each of the positions has its particular quirks, and deserves to have its own award. Alex Gordon won the left field award, most likely due to his 20 outfield assists, and Nick Markakis took won the right field Gold Glove.

It looks like we've finally reached the end of this debacle. It's been two years since the McCourts divorced, which started this whole bankruptcy mess. The team will be sold in an auction some time this winter, with Mark Cuban perhaps one of the contenders.
