Reminder: the Giants won the World Series

That's my reaction to assertions that Andres Torres didn't win a Gold Glove. Shane Victorino did. Gold Glove winners tend to be those who have reputations so the big surprise would have been if the writers had actually voted in Torres -- who's still looked upon as a fluke, much like the World Series title for the Giants.

It's just a reminder of the East Coast that pervades sportswriting, along with the fact that Giants play most of their games at night in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego -- long after most of the nation is tuned out.

Remember '51 has a pretty decent analysis that winds up comparing Torres to Mickey Rourke -- which makes Victorino the equivalent of Sean Penn.

UPDATE -- Giantsrainman points out that managers and players make the determination of the Gold Glove winners.

Managers and coaches not writers vote for Gold Gloves and they are even worse in the reasonableness of their votes then the writers.

Well, that's kind of embarrassing for me. Thanks for correcting my mist-statement!
