Polanco Wins Gold Glove

Placido Polanco won a Gold Glove tonight.

Shane Victorino and Carlos Ruiz were finalists, but lost to Matt Kemp and Yadier Molina, respectively.

Polanco is just the second player in baseball history to win Gold Gloves at two different positions. He won twice as a second baseman with Detroit in 2007 and 2009 before winning as a third baseman this year with the Phillies. Darin Erstad won as an outfielder with the Angels in 2000 and 2002 before winning at first base in 2004.

good for Polly, but I still think we need to upgrade at 3B. No matter how good his bat is in April/May, we need a 3B who can play 150+ games while healthy

Well, there goes the theory that they traditionally give the GG to players who are better offensively.

Congrats to Poly….. although we’d all rather see him play 150 games healthy and get NO gold glove, if given a choice…
