Ichiro Wins Fielding Bible Award For Outstanding Achievement In The Field Of Excellence

Congratulations to the little guy, who won his second right field Fielding Bible Award in a row. The guy who beat him in 2008 is the guy who now plays next to him every day for six months. This team can't do much, but at least it can dependably catch the fly balls its pitching staff allows entirely too often.

It's the third Fielding Bible Award of Ichiro's career, to go with nine Gold Gloves, a really good UZR, and an annual top or near-top finish in tangotiger's fan scouting report. I guarantee you that these, along with his million dollar mattress and comforter woven from the hair of celebrities, allow Ichiro to sleep comfortably at night despite having missed out on the playoffs for nine consecutive years. Sorry about the whole winning team thing, Ichiro. At least you have three Fielding Bible Awards.

The full group of winners (one per position):

C: Yadier Molina
1B: Daric Barton
2B: Chase Utley
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
3B: Evan Longoria
LF: Brett Gardner
CF: Michael Bourn
RF: Ichiro
P: Mark Buehrle

That outfield combined to hit three fewer home runs than Yuniesky Betancourt.

Also you night notice that, of the nine winners, exactly none of them are playing in the World Series. From this we can pretty safely conclude that baseball is 100% all about pitching and dingers.
