It's official. Mark Buehrle has won his long-coveted Gold Glove. The White Sox pitcher with cat-like reflexes has made a name for himself for his defense on the mound, and now he can place this special trophy on his mantle next to his World Series ring....and maybe a Schlitz.
I'm off to the GM Meetings out at O'Hare. We'll certainly get reaction from Kenny Williams on this topic (oh, and a few others), but in the meantime, here's a story I wrote on September 17th about Buehrle and his quest for the Gold Glove.
Who are the Bulls? The team that beat Cleveland and Toronto or lost to Dallas, Minnesota and Milwaukee?
That's the question Bulls fans are currently asking and the one Bulls Insider Vincent Goodwill posed in the video above.
The Bulls have had impressive wins and shocking losses, but neither of those should be surprising at this point. The Bulls are, as Goodwill put it, consistently inconsistent.
The first half of the season has proven that Dwyane Wade still has some memorable moments left to give and Jimmy Butler continues to approach superstardom. On the downside, the drama surrounding Rajon Rondo has meant the 'three alphas' that were hyped up in the preseason haven't been the dynamic trio some Bulls fans had hoped.
Coach Fred Hoiberg doesn't have the shooters his system needs, but can he still rally the troops and get something out of Rondo?
Watch the video to see Goodwill's look back on the Bulls' first half and what could be ahead.
