Cleveland Indians: No Gold Glove winners in 2018

The Cleveland Indians had four players nominated for Gold Glove Awards and all four came away empty in what is a confusing process.

Major League Baseball had a big award announcement Sunday night and everyone around the nation was tuned in to see who would win the 2018 Gold Glove Awards.

Oh wait, that’s not true. The awards were announced without much fanfare and a lot of fans only found out on Twitter.

I am among the group who was watching football or just staring into the early evening darkness, completely forgetting that the awards were being announced. It appears I didn’t miss much.

The Cleveland Indians had four players nominated and none of the four won.

I see Salvador Perez on the list instead of Yan Gomes and I realize that these awards are nothing to get upset about. The voting is clearly flawed.

Francisco Lindor, Jose Ramirez and Corey Kluber all lost as well, although lost may not be the best word.

This is adding to the theme of 2018. I doubt any Indians players will win any other major awards and while they are nice accomplishments to follow, fans can firmly shift attention toward the offseason. Because apparently anything can happen from the Indians making a few small moves to the team trading some star players.

These moves will likely be thrown on Twitter at random, but that is how this works. Maybe MLB can learn that major award announcements should have a bit of advertising and marketing around them. Or maybe the league was embarrassed to show the results.

Anyway, Indians fans have enough to worry about so the lack of any Gold Gloves shouldn’t cause much of a stir.
