Rollins and Victorino are Golden

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 ·

Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins and centerfielder Shane Victorino were awarded with Gold Gloves this morning to acknowledge their great defensive abilities. No, Chase Utley? Yes, we're shocked too.

Anyway, gold gloves rarely go to the best defensive fielder, but both Victorino and Rollins were very good fielding their position. Also, I don't want to take anything away from Cincinatti second-baseman Brandon Phillips. He is very good defensively and he won the vote from The Fielding Bible (though Utley lead all 2B in +/-).

Rollins received his 2nd straight of 2 career gold gloves and Shane Victorino was awarded for his first. Good center fielders? It is the second straight season that a Phillies center fielder won the gold glove (Rowand).


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
