28F388C4814FFF32CBB46899BC9C4The Yankees took three of the nine AL Gold Glove awards handed out today, with Derek Jeter winning his fifth, Mark Teixeira getting his fourth and Robinson Cano taking home the first Gold Glove of his career.

Here are the winners (with my thoughts in italics):

Catcher: Joe Mauer, Twins (Maybe the best all-around player in the game)
First base: Mark Teixeira, Yankees (Makes his teammates look good)
Second base: Robinson Cano, Yankees (No surprise here)
Third base: Evan Longoria, Rays (No surprise here, either)
Shortstop: Derek Jeter, Yankees (For me, this was a surprise – I would have gone with Elvis Andrus)
Outfield: Carl Crawford, Rays (Still has great speed and range)
Outfield: Ichiro Suzuki, Mariners (Might be my favorite player to watch play)
Outfield: Franklin Gutierrez, Mariners (New on the scene but very highly-regarded by scouts)
Pitcher: Mark Buehrle, White Sox (Has a player ever won a Gold Glove because of one play?)
