I have beat up Billy Hamilton more than anyone the past 5 years but today I must stand up for him. Once again last night MLB passed out The Gold Glove Awards and somehow Billy got snubbed again
If there is one thing he does deserve, it is a Gold Glove but since he can’t hit, he is passed over. Yes, I said because he can’t hit. Of course I know the award is for fielding but somehow the people voting on the award forgot that fact. For Hamilton to get snubbed again is not only wrong but to me it totally makes this award a sham.
More proof is that Joey Votto was a finalist at first base. He is one of the worst fielders in the game but he can hit. Case closed!
