Seriously, if anyone who votes for the Gold Glove awards watched this game, there should be no alternative.

Darwin Barney is just too good to not get it.

I wasn't really watching the game intently, but I saw at least three plays that many second basemen would not make. Two of these were ranging to his left, one with a spinning jump throw that looked awesom in slo-mo, and the other he slid around the ball an stood up and made the throw to get Alvarez by a mile.

He also made an incredible catch on a pop up directly over his head and the jumped over Dave Sappelt to avoid a collision and whirled to get the ball in to Castro.

No-brainer in my opinion. Any doubters should now be gone.

this should be one of the few positive the Cubs gain from this season.

...and Soriano's year at the plate and improved defense!!!

I hope he gets it!

Absolutely agree!!! Early this season I posted about Barney having a glove as good as Sandberg's... Now I guess the bar has been raised. I just wish he could get that OBP up a little.
