  • 2012 Fielding Bible Awards

    I prefer the Fielding Bible Awards to the Gold Glove Awards. I much prefer their voting method. They have a 10 man voting panel that consists of saber guys, a former major leaguer, and baseball writers. They look at stats and observations as well. They take the voting very seriously.

    Voting method: http://www.fieldingbible.com/about-t...ding-bible.asp

    The Panel: http://www.fieldingbible.com/about-t...ding-bible.asp

    2012 Winners: http://www.fieldingbible.com/the-winners.asp

    Note: They combine the NL/AL. There are only nine Fielding Bible Award winners.

    I like it as well. It's a very good source of baseball info.

      The one thing I would change is that they should still have separate NL and AL awards. But that is a minor quibble. It would be cool if at some point in the future if Rawlings would partner with the Fielding Bible group to use the Fielding Bible voting process for the official Gold Gloves.

        I agree with you completely on all counts.

              I also agree. Plus, several guys can have great defensive years. Choosing only one shorthands the other players because they don't get a mention when looking strictly at the winners. At least you get two if you separate the leagues. I wish GG or FB voting showed the entire ballot like Cy Young or MVP.

              Michael Bourn blew away the competition in the more rangier stats. I'm glad he didn't win anything since his arm isn't that great. He makes a lot of outs from speed, not necessarily skill. After seeing his 2012 fielding highlights, I wasn't too impressed. There were a lot of diving catches made in nondescript fashion. That is, they were mostly typical of a good MLB outfielder.

                I also used to hate how the Gold Gloves award would not distinguish between left fielders, center fielders, and right fielders. Often three center fielders would win the three out Gold Glove Awards. That made as much sense as awarding the four infield Gold Glove Awards to four shortstops.

                  HWR, I see much similarities this season between the Fielding Bible and the MLB awards. Trout's travesty and Brendan Ryan are the only dark spots.
