Congratulations to Adam Jones for winning the first Gold Glove of his career. Dude is an amzing fielder, and the recognition is deserved. Making an All-Star team, and winning a Gold Glove in just his second full season is pretty impressive. That home run he robbed from Kevin Youkilis was my single favorite play from last season.
Unfortunately, there's another outfielder in Baltimore who deserved a Gold Glove of his own, and for the second season in a row, he was denied. I'm of course talking about everyone's favorite player, Nick Markakis (ok, maybe just mine).
He regularly finishes near the top of the assists category, and has an absolute cannon for an arm. Not only does he damn near or above hit .300 every season, hit 20 HRs, and drive in 100 runs, he can field his position as well. I think it'll be downright special to watch these 2 young outfielders develop, and they are the #1 thing Orioles fans should be excited for 2010. I salivate thinking about the numbers these two could put up if they had a little lineup protection. Here's hoping for a big batted first or third baseman to get signed this off-season.
