2012 Rawlings Gold Glove Announcement Show Open Thread (9:30, ESPN2)

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Let's see if no one wins.

9:30, ESPN2

Guest presenters: Sandy Alomar, Jr., Andre Dawson, Ozzie Smith

Last time, Mike Matheny was a presenter. So I guess this means Sandy Alomar will be managing in the majors next year.

The Reds have the most nominees for Gold Gloves in the majors, with 6. Bronson Arroyo, plus two-thirds of their outfield and 3/4 of their infield:

Joey Votto, 1B
Brandon Phillips, 2B
Zack Cozart, SS
Jay Bruce, RF
Drew Stubbs, CF

When I first looked at the list of nominees, I thought the Reds were likely to get shut out. Having given it slightly more thought, I think Votto has a decent chance to beat Freeman and LaRoche - despite missing time. I can imagine Bruce winning on past reputation. And, while I don't think he'll win, Cozart is dark horse pick.

Get your predictions in the thread.

My predictions

P - Mark Buehrle

C - Yadier Molina (THESE ARE PREDICTIONS)
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Darwin Barney
SS - Ian Desmond
3B - David Wright

LF - Martin Prado
CF - Michael Bourn
RF - Jason Heyward
