I'm hoping the fact that defensive saber numbers are becoming at least a bit mainstream will help, but to answer your question, yes.

I remember the backlash when he won his first gold glove, and he's now up to 5? wow.

How a guy with by far the worst range of any qualified shortstop in major league baseball can get an award as being the best defender... I just don't get it. And Cano has the 2nd lowest range out of any qualified 2B in major league baseball. What an embarrassment. The weird thing is that most of the other choices actually make a bit of sense.

Haters gonna hate. I've been waiting for these to come out so I'd know who the best defenders in the league are.

Dbacks: did you ever think that maybe those guys are all allstars because of their outstanding defense?

I loved this when I read it a year or so ago.

Jeter is great at making the easy plays look hard.

So who really deserved the AL Gold Glove at SS, Andrus? Alexi Ramirez? Cliff Pennington?

according to UZR (which obviously isn't perfect) it'd be Alexei.
