Tonight awards season kicks off. First up the Gold Glove awards will be announced. ESPN2 will be airing the program starting at 6 pm. Then right after that the BBWAA announce the finalists for Cy Young, MVP, etc awards. That will air on MLB Network starting at 5 pm with a rebroadcast at 7 pm. The winners of those awards will be announced next week on Mon-Thur.

It's unfortunate but I suspect there won't be any Brewers up for awards this evening. Though Baseball Reference did tweet this out earlier today:

Clearly Adam Lind has no chance of winning nor should he. However it does go to show that the numbers--at least this year--back up the eye test. Because he sure looked like he could play some first base to me this year despite what I had heard about him.

It might surprise you to learn the only other Brewer that finished in the top ten at a position was Martin Maldonado:

It's not exactly surprising that the Brewers only had two players finish in the top ten defensively at their position. But if I told you on Opening Day it would be Adam Lind and Martin Maldonado you might have laughed at me.
