In a season of repeated failure, Ryan Zimmerman played up to expectations and in the midst of laughs from home and opposing fans. In turn, his defense has earned him his first N.L. Gold Glove.

At the hot corner, Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman completed one of the most well-rounded individual seasons in baseball by winning his first Gold Glove. Zimmerman, who made his first All-Star team and batted .292 with 33 home runs and 106 RBIs, also led all NL third basemen in assists, total chances, total outs recorded, and games started.

With Adam Jones getting his first A.L. Gold Glove yesterday, the Baltimore-Washington area now leads the MLB in adequately catching bones thrown our way. Not that Jones and Zimmerman didn’t earn them, but hey, everybody knows we have nothing to cheer about baseball-wise outside of their glory.
