Andrew McCutchen wins a Gold Glove

I'm very happy that Andrew McCutchen hit well enough to win this year's National League Gold Glove Award in center field. I hope he continues hitting well enough throughout his career that he can accumulate several more of these prestigious defensive awards. 

(I know I'm being cynical, but that's pretty much how the Gold Gloves are awarded and since the Pirates' collapse will keep McCutchen out of the upper tier of the MVP discussion this year, I suppose I'm happy to see that he won even a dumb award because it means someone else was paying attention to the great season that he had, even if they're recognizing him for an aspect of his game that he's certainly the weakest part of his game by a pretty wide margin.)

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
