Even if they didnt do much in the 2010 postseason, the Tampa Bay Rays still brought home some bling this year, as the annual American League Gold Glove awards were announced today.
At long last, Rays left fielder Carl Crawford was rewarded for his stellar defensive play with a Glove; its a pity the now-free agent (most likely) wont be showing off that hardware in the home team dugout at Tropicana Field any time soon. Despite an excellent showing for years on end, this is Crawfords first time receiving the award; apparently he wasnt banking on it happening this year either.
"You never know, I figured it was going to be a long shot again [this season]," Crawford told MLB.com. "I was hoping, I really wanted to win it bad. Waiting so long, you just never know."
