Of the 3 nominees for Gold Glove – Cozart- Phillips- Hamilton-who has the best shot ???
good debate material,–It will make you think.

MLB is so screwed up….on the timing of these announcements every year……. College Football is in the final home stretch…NFL is in full gear where every game is serious….NBA has started their season, as has the NHL and College BB is just starting its preseason…….. MLB needs a serious major Marketing team to fix this and maximize their exposure,not minimize it…. These announcements could be developed into a gala on the level of an NFL draft, in my opinion….ESPN and FOX would FIGHT over the broadcast rights… Maybe one week after the Superbowl, as a lead in to Spring training and fodder for the final hot stove league discussions. And don’t get me started on the elimination of Playoff and World Series games during the weekday….two generations of school age boys and girls have been lost without the experience of watching the World Series late in the afternoon, as dad came home early to watch the game with his son and daughter.

Very well put!! I agree 100 percent on everything in your post T2 !!!
