It's A Golden Infield

And the winners are...

Robbie Cano (of course), Mark Teixeira (naturally), and Derek Jeter!!

Wait, what?

Yeah, you heard right, folks.  Somehow Derek Jeter won his 5th Gold Glove award today in a year where he posted negative defensive numbers across the board.  Shit, you didn't even have to look at the numbers.  Just watch a game or 2 and it would have been painfully obvious to everybody who isn't John Sterling and Joe Morgan that The Captain was not a Gold Glove defender this season.  I'm a Yankee fan and one of the biggest homers around and even I think that Jeter winning the award is a joke.

Oh well.  We'll take it.  God bless the mainstream baseball media.
