Cardinals will receive votes on Nov. 11th (Edman), Nov.12th (Shildt) and Nov. 13th (Flaherty), but none seriously amounting to anything significant on Nov. 14th. My dream for 2020 would be Flaherty and Hudson finishing 1-2 for the CY.October 2, 2019 at 6:04 am #109681
Pugs, no rookie of the year votes for Mr. Hudson?? No one else has a chance to win after Alonso’s season, but Hudson and Edman should get some votes. Great year and durability for both rookies!
Alonso will win ROY, but assuming health, Tatis will end up with a much higher career WAR.October 2, 2019 at 6:37 am #109684PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
Great catch, CardsFanInChiTown! As somewhat of a consolation, I did mention Hudson finishing second in next year’s CY to our own Jack Rafe Flaherty.October 2, 2019 at 7:21 am #109686
Pugs, after 32 starts, it’s easy to forget he was a rookie!
Could I add a third to your 2020 CY prediction? How about the new Cards lefty hurler who goes by the name Matt Boyd, who sneaks past Hudson into the #2 spot due to his 250k’s….October 2, 2019 at 7:40 am #109692
I didn’t realize Hudson was the league leader in BB’s, 4.4 per nine for 86 on the season.October 4, 2019 at 1:14 pm #110169Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
I think Dejong and Goldschmidt will win Gold Gloves. In fact, both stand a chance for the Platinum glove. Wong (if eligible) will finish second to ALbies.October 4, 2019 at 1:33 pm #110171stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Wong (if eligible) will finish second to ALbies.
Why would that be? Wong has a significant lead on Albies in DRS (14 to 8), UZR/150 (3.6 to 1.8) and was first among 2B at 12.6 on the Sabr Defensive Index as of Aug 18. Albies is 10th in the NL in the same metric. SDI is actually a part of the Gold Glove selection process. I don’t see much of a reason that Wong won’t win the GG.October 22, 2019 at 8:08 am #112413
I hate the whole “finalists” creating fake suspense thing. Just announce the darned winners, please…

Hudson’s walk rate was high at 4.4 per nine. But I think 2 or 3 of those BB’s came in the first or second inning of games. For the rest of the game it was ground out after ground out after ground out ………October 22, 2019 at 10:04 am #112430gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
If only they would do away with the awards altogether. I have never had any interest in individual awards. The teams are more important to me. As the old cliche goes, the name on the front of the jersey is more important than the name on the back of the jersey.

Molina, Goldschmidt, Wong & DeJong.October 24, 2019 at 2:27 pm #112659
For those who care about top three finishers, the Cards did well.
Pitcher Jack Flaherty
Catcher Yadier Molina
First baseman Paul Goldschmidt
Second baseman Kolten Wong
Shortstop Paul DeJong
Center fielder Harrison Bader

How many Gold Glove winners will we have? Also, I was thinking Bader didn’t get enough games to qualify, but apparently he did.October 24, 2019 at 3:19 pm #112665stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Good to see some recognition of the good defense this year. Wong should be a shoo-in, Molina seems to find ways to win, and I’d probably choose Goldy. I’d guess Bader may have a good shot, since voters like to give achievement awards for these.
I’ll say Wong, Yadi and Bader win.October 25, 2019 at 9:19 am #112708PadsFSParticipantFree
I think only Wong will win.
Goldschmidt likely gets beat out by Rizzo, although Freeman should be in there imo.
Yadi likely bows out to Realmuto.
DeJong likely loses to Story, although all three are great choices at SS. Baez, Rojas (MIA), and Iglesias (CIN) are right there with them too. Good year for NL SS defense.
Cain and Robles smash Bader in DRS, but he doubles their UZR/150s. I think Cain wins one finally. Robles will win quite a few before its over.
I didn’t count Flaherty since I have no idea how they would compare pitching defense.October 25, 2019 at 3:10 pm #112740October 31, 2019 at 2:06 pm #113358November 3, 2019 at 9:38 am #113567
Mark Simon, formerly of ESPN and now with The Athletic, uses an analysis of the numbers to say who “should” win the Gold Gloves. His assessment has Wong being the only Cardinal deserving. The actual winners will be announced tonight at 6 pm CT.November 3, 2019 at 6:19 pm #113606November 3, 2019 at 7:15 pm #113608RatsbuddyParticipantFree
Good job Kolten, well deserving!
Now shorten that stroke, make more contact, and get that average up over .300 in 2020.

SABR’s defensive metrics, 25% of Gold Glove Award scoring, indicated why the 2019 #stlcards had only one selection. Kolten Wong won the coveted award, but Paul DeJong actually scored out as a better defender this past season. Full details at TCN. (free) https://t.co/7zLv35zyTA pic.twitter.com/yrx0aKBvo7

Good writeup on SDI Brian. It brings me a bit more understanding but I am still not a believer – blame it on age and stubbornness….LOL
What is your best guess for Platinum As I read it Kolten could be in the running but Arenado will probably be the winner.
Soto, the jerk, being a finalist makes the whole program suspect.
