MLB Gold Glove Awards: 10 Amazing Fielders Who Got Screwed in Vote Nominations
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

On Monday afternoon, Rawlings announced its Gold Glove Award finalists for each position in both leagues.

Rawlings relies on votes from each team's manager and up to six coaches from each team as well.

It's always been a preconceived notion that the Gold Glove Award is given to the player who does the best overall job at fielding his position.

Judging from some of the nominations for finalists, I'm not so sure that's the case.

Could it be that some managers vote for particular players because they once made a diving stop against his team?

One diving stop does not a good defensive player make.

Only the voters can opine as to their reasons why particular players were chosen over others.

As for me, I'm going to opine right now.

Here are 10 players who were snubbed as a finalist for a Gold Glove Award.
