Overheard Idiocy

Overheard during the Cleveland Indians-Chicago White Sox game.

One of the three announcers (I think Steve Phillips) said with a straight face that if Joe Crede batted .300 for the season, it would improve his chances of winning a Gold Glove.

I cannot even begin to elucidate for you just how ridiculous a statement that is, especially considering the Gold Glove is strictly a defensive award. So I will take the only course of action available to me. I will go to the stats.

Of the sixteen every-day position players who won a Gold Glove last year, five players hit .300 or above. Five. Out of sixteen. Thirty-one percent.
