All Time Gold Glove

Looking at the ballot, available at http://www.rawlingsgoldglove.com, there are two Pirates on the ballot. Roberto Clemente and Bill Mazeroski are no surprises to any fan of baseball. But I am shocked at some players who made the final ballot and some left off:

  • J.T. Snow, 1B - He was good defensively, but an all time great?
  • Eric Chavez, 3B - Once again a good player, but being named with Brooks Robinson and Mike Schmidt is a bit premature.
  • Short Stop, SS - How can they have Jeter listed but no A-Rod? Ozzie is the man here, but still...
  • Outfield, OF - Devon White is listed and no Cobra?

These are my first impressions of the list. Rawlings has almost turned this into a sham of a promotion. If Jeter wins over Ozzie, I call foul!

Leave your thoughts in the comments section, I am interested in seeing what other oversights are glaring.
