Wieters, Hardy, Markakis named Gold Glove finalists.

BALTIMORE, MD - SEPTEMBER 28: Marco Scutaro #10 of the Boston Red Sox is tagged out at home plate in the eighth inning by Matt Wieters #32 of the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on September 28, 2011 in Baltimore, Maryland. (Photo by Greg Fiume/Getty Images)

The 2011 Gold Gloves will be announced tomorrow at 10 p.m. Why not in the middle of the day, you ask? Because for the first time, they will be televised (on ESPN2). They've announced three finalists for each position, and for the first time are awarding separate awards for each of the outfield positions. 

The Orioles have three finalists: Matt Wieters at catcher, Nick Markakis at right field, and J.J. Hardy at shortstop. Like many of you, I don't put much stock in Gold Gloves, but it would still be great if any of these guys could lock one up. It'd especially be great if Wieters won as I truly believe he deserves it. Nearly every defensive measure shows him to be a superior catcher. If he does win, I don't feel like it would be undeserved as I did two years ago when Adam Jones was named the winner.
