The American League Golden Glove awards are just out. Some surprises: Adrian Beltre beat out both .Alex Rodriguez and Eric Chavez at 3B. And Orlando Cabrera of the Anaheim Angels or California Angels or whatever they are beat out Derek Jeter at SS.
(In an exclusive interview with this blog, baseball authority John A'mato explains that Jeter got off to a "rough start... because of the intense cold that blanketed the East Coast" at the start of the season and that Cabrera was "consistent throughout.")
I know I don't ordinarily write about baseball, but we are trying a new business model at this blog, to increase readers. We are grateful to the eleven unique visitors we now have, but we would like to try for more. On the other hand, we don't want to alienate our base... by getting into an entirely unexpected area. Aargh.
