Washington Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman Loses Out In Gold Glove Voting To Scott Rolen.

Sure he's got a bad habit of throwing (fairly accurately most of the time) from the hip, and he does occasionally sail a throw from third to first, (all Dunn's fault?) but that doesn't mean that Ryan Zimmerman isn't the best third baseman in the game both defensively and offensively. (Yeah, yeah, Evan Longoria's pretty good). The voters who select the winners of the Rawlings Gold Glove Awards once again recognized failed to recognize Ryan Zimmerman's at-times-spectacular D when he was awarded his second consecutive instead awarding Cincinnati Reds' third baseman Scott Rolen with his eighth Gold Glove this afternoon for his work at third in a 2010 season. Zimmerman, the Nats' 26-year-old Face of the Franchise© post a .951 fld% (down a bit from last season's .963 fld%) with 17 errors in the field and a +13.9 UZR (second in the NL behind San Diego's Chase Headley and 3rd overall in baseball amongst third baseman). Zimmerman took home the Gold Glove and the Silver Slugger last season. The 2010 Silver Slugger winners will be announced tomorrow (11/11/10). More on Zimmerman's GG win later...Rolen had a .977 fld% in 2010, and the 35-year-old 15-year veteran infielder made just 8 errors while posting +10.6 UZR in 133 games. Zimmerman was robbed...so was Chase Headley, honestly...
