Our Defense (Was) A Good Defense

The voting results for the 2009 Fielding Bible Awards have been released, and Jack Wilson, Ichiro, and Franklin Gutierrez claimed 33% of the electronic hardware, with both Adrian Beltre and Jack Hannahan finishing as runners-up at third base. This is about as significant as the Kids Choice Awards, with the only real difference being that most of the Mariners have probably heard of the Kids Choice Awards.

It is interesting that, of the eight non-pitcher defensive positions, you could make the argument that the Mariners wound up with the best glove at four of them. It's absurd how good this defense was all season. It's also absurd how few people realize the difference that made. Can a brother get a big bat over here?!
