As the 2012 season approaches, we can expect to see the American League's best fielders put on another great show on the baseball diamond. Last season's AL voting featured heavy competition at almost every position, and don't be surprised to see the same in 2012.
With some Gold Glove streaks ending over this past season—such as Ichiro Suzuki, Joe Mauer and Torii Hunter—it should be fun to watch this year's Gold Glove battle. The AL exit of defending award-winner Mark Buehrle should also make the conversation more interesting.
Take a look at the the nine players I believe have the best shot at a Gold Glove award this season.
