Oakland A's fans know how good Kurt Suzuki is at his job behind the plate.
It's certainly time the rest of the nation begins to take notice. He's been a steadfast member of the team for the past three-and-a-half years. He's handled some the best pitchers in the American League, and his team has the lowest ERA in the majors this year.
He keeps runners off the bases, and when they do reach, they don't stay long.
There are many reasons why Suzuki should get his first Gold Glove this season. It was difficult to pair the list down to five, but I gave it a shot.
