If they don't win ay least they were recognized.

Travis did a great job at second base with no previous time there. How many players can do that. He isn't Brooks Robinson but give the guy credit for only having 11 errors all year playing 3 infield positions.

Shaw is slow running up on balls. He makes decent throws, but you can’t be that slow and get a ton of baserunners out. I think he is a fine defender, but nowhere near GG.

Shaw is underrated to some extent, but Yelich is overrated. Yelich isn’t very fast so he doesn’t cover a ton of ground and his arm is pretty terrible. He runs great routes though which a lot of people overlook when it comes to OF defense. I just don’t see how you can get anywhere close to calling him a GG.


Yelich isn't very fast....?


Compared to....like....Cain....or like Hamilton...or other guys considered elite defensively, no. He does not have elite speed. He does not cover a ton of ground.

But once again I guess we are talking LF where you just need to be slightly above average in the OF to win a GG.

It is usually mid-November. I believe this year the MVP awards are announced on November 15th.

To answer the question asked earlier here is a schedule of important dates and calendar events during the MLB off-season (via Cleveland.com)...

* One day after World Series ends, eligible players can file for free agency.

* The conclusion of the fall classic also starts the clock on a five-day "quiet period" where teams can negotiate exclusively with their own free agents, but are prohibited from signing anybody.

* At the end of the "quiet period," clubs must decide whether or not to extend one-year qualifying offers to free agents. The qualifying offer was $17.4 million last year and will likely be around $18 million this offseason.

* Also at the end of the five-day quiet period, clubs are faced with a deadline whether or not to pick up player options for the 2019 season.

* The day after the five-day quiet period, free agents are allowed to sign with any club, kicking off free agency in the traditional sense.

I am not sure how it works in the MLB, but is Hader considered a rookie? Therefore, eligible to win the rookie of the year award? I have not heard him mentioned anywhere for the award. If he is eligible for it, he will most likely be the run away rookie of the year winner.

I believe he is technically eligible because he was under 50 innings in 2017, but I also think it’s likely that the NL Rookie of the Year Award is a two horse race: Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña Jr.

it's 50 IP or 45 days of mlb service time (September doesn't count)

Per Cot's, Hader had 115 days of mlb service time in 2017. So even removing the 30 days for September he lost rookie status last year.

Gold Glove is an absolute joke. We know how good Cain is. It’s a shame for him that he’s unlikely to ever get a Gold Glove, but if he gets another ring, I think he’ll find a way to consider his career fairly successful. Go Crew.

What is best in life? To crush the Cardinals, Cubs, and Manny Machado, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their fanboys.

Cain was at +20 DRS, +8.7 UZR & 19 Outs Above Average.

Inciarte was at +17 DRS, +7.2 UZR & 21 Outs Above Average.

That's about as close as you can get given the margin of error inherent with single season defensive metrics.

If there was a vote on “who had the highest batting average in the National League”, a majority of voters would pick against Yelich.

Then make it a tie like they did for first base.

Cain did win the Fielding Bible award for CF for MLB in 2018. I considering the Fielding Bible award to be more credible than the Gold Glove award.

I agree that the Gold Glove awards have been historically inconsistent to say the least. However, the normal knock on them is that the voters tend to pick guys that also have good offensive numbers or "star quality" names over players that actually deserve the award. In this case Inciarte is not a better offensive player than Cain and is really not any more well-known than Cain, so that narrative does not really fit here. As sveumrules pointed out, their numbers are fairly close, so it seems like perhaps the voters actually may have done some homework and Inciarte may have just been able to get an extra vote or two (to they show detailed results anywhere?).

I did think Cain was going to win and I'm bummed that he didn't, but Inciarte is certainly very deserving as you pointed out.

The NL Gold Glove field is really deep at CF. Almora, Marte, and Bader are all fantastic in CF too.
