Perfect example of the ESPN east coast bias. On the day that Michigan lost to Appalachian State (arguably the biggest upset in college football history) Sportscenter's lead story was a no hitter by a Red Sox pitcher.

Boy, it's sure nice to see Brendan Ryan, who had one of - if not THE - highest hits and runs-defended stats in the league last year get the shaft.

The M's may not have been able to hit well this year, but anybody who watched them play knew that Ryan was a frakking wall at shortstop and routinely made plays that other SS's tried to make and failed.

Remember in 1999 when Palmeiro won the 1B gold glove despite only playing 30 games at 1B? That's how relevant this award is.

Sin_City_Superhero: That said, I do wish someone would tell ESPN that there are other teams that play baseball, besides the Yankees and Red Sox.


I wouldn't call anything the Sox did this year "playing baseball".
