GARDY IS A GOLD GLOVE FINALIST
You gotta appreciate Brett Gardner. While I have always felt that he sometimes looks awkward in the outfield with his body movements, more times than not, he makes the play and I appreciate that. Rawlings does too apparently, he was just listed as a finalist for a Gold Glove.
According to the Post and Courier:
"Rawlings released the list of finalists for its Gold Glove awards Thursday afternoon, and Gardner is one of three American League left fielders in contention...According to Rawlings, the award 'represents overall fielding excellence, and it is not an award based solely on fielding metrics and statistics, nor does it factor offensive production.'...
The 33-year-old lives in Summerville during the offseason and is competing against four-time winner Alex Gordon of the Royals and Colby Rasmus of the Astros. Winners will be announced Nov. 8. "
Tough competition, but I am confident Gardy can win this!
