Cubs Trivia:

How many consecutive Gold Glove awards did Hall of Fame third baseman Ron Santo win during the 1960s?

3 seems more likely, since Phil said that 4 was close.

Sounds about right.... and I think those were the only GGs Santo won - the 5 in a row. They were sandwiched by Ken Boyer GGs before and after the Santo ones. I used to care about GGs, but couldn't tell you who's been winning them lately. I stopped caring the year Palmeiro won at 1B when he was a DH. That was the last straw for me. I do know Barney won one this year. yaaaawn.

Ya, biggest joke ever. In this day and age, no sense in having baseball writers do the voting. Just turn it over to the BCS computers, couldn't do worse.

I'm just trying to figure out how Boise State got the shaft. They totally should've at least had a shot at one by now.
