Adrian Gonzalez won his first Gold Glove yesterday. It is well deserved. Adrian is super-solid over at first. On this horrible Padres team, he was still able to have a spectacular year. He participated in the All-Star game this year, and now he has his first of many Gold Gloves. In 161 games, he had 6 errors with a fielding percentage of .996. Now, Adrian is a huge part of San Diego. He participates in countless charity events for organizations all over the county. In this uncertain offseason for Padres fans, we finally got some good news yesterday. When we’re getting nothing but trade rumors for our best player, we really need GOOD news once in a while. And here it is. It was amazing what Adrian was able to accomplish this year. He improved almost everywhere he could. He had a great year as an individual. He hit a lot better at Petco, driving a good number of homers to left field as well as right. Adrian is just a great guy, and this award is very deserved. CONGRATS, ADRIAN!

In other news, it appears that Greg Maddux will retire. But he did get his 18th Gold Glove yesterday. Dude, he’s amazing. It was so much fun to have him in San Diego, and it’s too bad that he couldn’t end his career in a Padres uniform.
