Brandon Phillips deserves another Gold Glove.
Cincinnati his several candidates to win a Gold Glove. Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto and Bronson Arroyo all have Gold Gloves to their credit, but the defense has had some rough stretches this season.
Votto currently leads the league in errors by a first baseman. Phillips has made a few more errors than he usually does, but he also gets to more balls and makes more plays than any player in the league.
Jay Bruce will finally win the Gold Glove after being snubbed in each of the past few seasons.
Overtaking Jason Heyward of the Atlanta Braves won't be easy, but Bruce deserves the award. He limits runners on the bases by getting to balls quickly and has a cannon for an arm. He also has had to cover more ground without Drew Stubbs in center this year.
That leaves one more player on the team who will win a Gold Glove. That would be Phillips. The managers stuck it to the flashy second baseman last year, but now they can give him the award that belongs to him.
Errors are irrelevant when it comes to him because they usually come from him trying to make an incredible play. For the amount of ground that he covers in the outfield, he deserves consideration for a Gold Glove in center.
OK, maybe not. He does, however, routinely make plays deep into the outfield that no other players come close to matching. His range is incredible.
Cozart could work his way back into the conversation at shortstop, but it's a long shot at this point.
There could be a sneaky winner. Pitchers are tough to predict, but Mark Buehrle is no longer in the NL. Arroyo could take home another Gold Glove, or Mike Leake could grab his first.
Unless a pitcher wins one, the Reds will have to settle for two Gold Gloves.
