I hoped Clayton Kershaw would win a National League Gold Glove award, though I wasn’t counting on it. As for Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, I didn’t even hope.

But all three of them won the prizes in the first annual Rawlings Gold Glove award show broadcast by ESPN – a record haul in one year for the franchise.

And the funny thing is, if there was any Dodger I would have picked for a Gold Glove, it would have been James Loney. But he got shut out. Yep – Andre Ethier won a Gold Glove, and James Loney did not. In any case, congrats to the winners, and don’t think too hard about the selection process.
