Molina, Wainwright win Gold Gloves

Congratulations to Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright and catcher

Yadier Monlina who both won 2009 Gold Gloves.

Wainwright did not make an error in 2009 while Molina had the

best rate of throwing out opposing baserunners in the National

League amongst starting catchers: 41 percent.

It was Wainwright's first Cy Young and Molina's second in a row.

Left off the list was former Gold Glover Albert Pujols who had

an excellent season with the leather but was snubbed in favor

of San Diego's Adrian Gonzalez.

I wonder, since Pujols seems to be a shoe in for his third NL

MVP award this season if Gonzalez got more Gold Glove

consideration to spread the love around a little bit...
