All-Time Lead Glove Awards

Postby bigh0rt » Tue Jun 12, 2007 11:40 am

Catcher– Darrin Fletcher, Expos, (’89-’02) — Thurman Munson holds the top two marks for worst fielding percentage, but it’s not nice to speak ill of the dead. Besides, Darrin Fletcher was plenty bad enough to be named worst all-time. He didn’t rack up errors like Munson, but he couldn’t throw anyone out to save his life. Fletch could hit the ball, so he survived as a DH for several years after his catching became unbearable. Unfortunately for Blue Jays fans, his announcing is just as bad as his fielding.

Outfield – Ben Grieve, (’97-’05) — I realize that this makes me sick, but I enjoyed watching Grieve play defense as much as any player in history. During the 2004 season I bought my tickets at Miller Park & Wrigley Field based on where Grieve was playing. Grieve reminded me of the short-lived SNL character Mr. No Depth Perception (played by Kevin Nealon). Inevitably, Grieve would break whichever way the ball wasn’t going, then run as fast as his lead legs would take him after the ball and finish with an awkward-looking swan dive. Worth the price of admission.

While reading the current leaders, the last line of the author's analysis of V-Mart is hilarious!

Victor couldn’t throw out a crippled midget if he had a decent lead.

This has to be the best one on there.... ;D :B

Matt Stairs, Blue Jays — The modern-day Pete Incaviglia doesn’t get to grace the field much these days, but when he does, it’s a sight to behold. Never a master of geometry, Stairs takes terrible angles on fly balls and if a ball would happen to ricochet off a wall, he might never find it. Stairs was used almost exclusively as a DH last season, but apparrently the Blue Jays have the same sense of humor as we do.

From what I'm hearing Billy Butler may manage to supplant one of these guys on the list soon. !+)
