There was a period of time when Toronto Blue Jays were a lock to win Gold Gloves in centre field and second base. From 1991 through 1995 Devon White and Roberto Alomar accomplished the feat every year, translating strong play up the middle into a couple of sweet World Series victories.
The Blue Jays are strong up the middle once more and earlier today centre fielder Vernon Wells and second baseman Orlando Hudson were recognized for their strong defensive work and awarded Gold Gloves.
Before you celebrate future World Series titles you should realize there's a good chance Orlando Hudson will be traded this off season. We'll see if this exciting defensive gem is in our starting lineup on opening day 2006.
