    And this is why the Gold Glove award is a Joke!

    Wright, Young are Gold Glove finalists

    David Wright and Eric Young Jr. have been nominated for Gold Glove awards.

    The other National League finalists at third base are Colorado's Nolan Arenado and Los Angeles' Juan Uribe.

    The other finalists in left field are Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez and Pittsburgh's Starling Marte.

    The winners will be announced at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday on ESPN2.

    Despite producing a franchise rookie record with 14 outfield assists, Juan Lagares was not among the finalists in center field. The finalists are Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez, Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen and Washington's Denard Span.

    Wright has won two previous Gold Gloves -- in 2007 and 2008. San Diego's Chase Headley won the award in 2012.

    Lol, and Wright will one one this year when he did not deserve it and did not win it last year when he was the best defensive third baseman.

    Lagares will win a few.

    How does a guy who has a 28 DRS not get nominated for a GG award?

    Well then again the GG award has always been a popularity contest. ****, Derek Jeter has 4 of them and he may have the worst range in the history of HOF SS.

    EYJ is legit.

    Despite fewer inn. played;

    .................Standing.......Inn.......chances. ......PO
    EYJ................3rd...........749.........189.. ........180
    Marte.............4th..........1038........187.... ......176
    Cargo.............5th...........857.........186... .......172

    ...............EYJ.........Marte.........Cargo
    RF/9.......2.20-1st...1.57-5th....1.92-3rd
    Assts.......7-4th........5-T5th.......11-1st
    E-9...........2-2nd......6-T6th........3-3rd
    TZ runs.....7..............9..............-9
    Fld%........989.........968...........984

    If the judging isn't a 'beauty contest' EYJ has a legitimate chance of getting the GG.

    ^Yeah but it is kind of ridiculous that EYJR is considered and Lagares is completely forgotten about. EYJR has an average arm at best, he didn't judge fly balls particularly well at times, and according to his DRS he was an average LF.

    E, FLD% aren't particularly great tools to evaluate defense because all they explain is what a fielder could get to and may have erred in. EYJR would make all the routine plays and some of the more difficult ones but Lagares tracked down everything.

    He was like a vacuum out there and had an absolute rifle when anyone tried to run on him. Not to mention Sabrmetrics had their first real input into the process this year which makes the Lagares exclusion even dumber.

    Especially when they voted in Denard Span over Lagares. That's just sad.

    The nominees for CF include Carlos Gomez, McCutchen, and Span, I'll add Lagares and compare


    .............Gomez...........McCutch...........Spa n............Lagares

    Assts........2.....................3.............. .....4..................1
    E-9..........2.....................3................ ...1..................4
    Fld.%.......2....................T3............... ...1.................T3
    RF/9........2.....................4.................. .3..................1
    PO*.........1......................4.............. .....3..................2
    TZ runs ..2......................3....................1... ..............2

    *PO are weighted to inns. played, all numbers represent positional standing among the 4 only.

    TZ runs saved are based on stat %, but also on accumulated stats.

    McCutchen won the GG last year on much stronger stats, but doesn't belong here in front of Lagares. It should go to Gomez.

    Gold Glove has always been about reputation over performance. Once a player gets the rep, he becomes an automatic write in. Very difficult for rookies to win Gold Gloves.

    Lagares will get his due within the next year or two if he can stay on the field.

    The thing is, it almost makes sense since defense, despite the best efforts of UZR and the like, is very difficult to measure. Lagares has a ton of assists right now but that's only because runners are still running on him. That will stop right around the time his rep gets more well known.
