    Is Fielding Bible part of the SDI? If so, that’s another piece that would show O’Neill as very likely to win a Good Glove.

    No, the metrics are not all the same. Also remember that the Fielding Bibles are for all of MLB while the Gold Gloves are by league.

    Here is the Fielding Bible process. Basically, people interpreting metrics.

    Interesting. No one else got a vote ahead of O’Neill in the NL. Hopefully bodes well for the GG.

    After they gave a GG to Tucker Barnhart in 2017, I lost all respect for this award. IMO, it means next to nothing. Bader not winning the ‘Gold Glove’ for CF is ludicrous. Goldschmidt digging out bad throws from all over the field has had a much greater impact on this team than Wong’s occasional highlight reel play.

    That very well could be, but the impact on the Cardinals isn’t how the National League Gold Gloves are chosen. Other first basemen across the game are also important to their teams’ defense. And comparisons are not made across positions. Wong is judged against other second basemen only.

    Not surprisingly, no Cardinals are among the top three for ROY, MVP, Cy Young or Manager of the Year.

    How the heck does Ross from CHC get in there for manager of the year with the roster he was given …these awards are a joke

    In all fairness, announcing the “finalists” is a joke. That Ross may have come in third (vs. Shildt who could have come in fourth, for example) means diddly squat. Ross isn’t going to win. Just announce the winners and stop with this finalist foolishness. They are not finalists. They are just the top three finishers. No one remembers or cares after the fact who came in second, third or fourth, anyway.

    The one I like best is from Chicago, but the other team. Rick Renteria was named a finalist for the AL Manager of the Year. That would be really cool except he was fired to make room for TLR. This is the second time he was booted from a Chicago team. Last time the Cubs threw him overboard to bring in Merlot Joe.

    Turns out that Tyler O’Neill was the 3rd best defender at any position in the NL this year. Kolten Wong was 4th.

    Arenado won and they interviewed him about his future in Colorado. He said something like “This year will be interesting. I just want to play for a winner. It would be nice if that’s in Colorado. But wherever it is, at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.”

    Odd they cite career GG totals since Molina has nine of his own.

    OK, here is the scoring. They just added up this year’s SDI totals of the qualifiers by team.

    Did they give an SDI for anyone for the Cards in RF for the team award? Because if not, that was the difference as the Cards didn’t appear to have an individual qualifier.

    No, the Cardinals did not have a RF qualifier. Further, the Cubs had four pitching qualifiers while the Cardinals had just one (after having five pitching qualifiers the year before). I don’t know why. I would guess IP. Though one of Chicago’s P’s had a negative score (Lester), which canceled out the third P (Darvish). It still wasn’t apples and apples.

    Having said that, last year Fowler’s SDI was negative 1.3. So his “help” may not have been help at all…

    We already knew Kim was not in the top three, but it is a little surprising he got zero votes.

    P.S. Carlson is eligible in 2021.
