The Reds had six finalists for this year’s Gold Glove awards. In order to perfectly cap off this terrible October, they went — of course — zero for six.
People are going to complain about Brandon Phillips losing out to Chicago’s Darwin Barney, but the fact that Jimmy Rollins won at shortstop was a much bigger joke. It’s ludicrous. Zack Cozart was one of the other finalists, and he would have been a much better choice than Rollins. Rollins can barely play the position anymore.
The other Reds who were denied: Jay Bruce, Drew Stubbs, Joey Votto, Bronson Arroyo. Surprised Ryan Hanigan wasn’t nominated at catcher.
Oh well, can we just start forgetting the last few weeks, please?
