DIRKS WAS A FINALIST FOR THE 2013 GOLD GLOVE AWARD?

So this was supposed to be a simple re-blog of a Detroit News post, H/T Nebraska and Sark, regarding Dirksburger’s rehab setback.  But then I read the article.

This was the last sentence of the story:

“Dirks has hit .275 with 24 homers and 100 RBIs over 297 games with the Tigers, and was a finalist for a Gold Glove in 2013.”

I’m sorry, what planet were judges on who made Dirksburger a finalist for the Gold Glove on?  What team were they watching? What player were they watching?  What sport were they watching?

The idea that Dirsky was among the top fielding outfielders in MLB last year is more than insane.  It is insulting.

  1. Well………yea…….If you look at the votes you gain perspective. I believe he was 28th out of 30 in the first vote. (I think that’s how it works)
