Is Barney a Gold Glover?

Though the season hasn’t been as bright as many hoped, Cubs fans do have a few things to hang their hats on from the 2012 season. Jeff Samardzija and Travis Wood both look like reliable arms for the future, Anthony Rizzo is playing as well as anybody could have asked, and some young players are getting valuable experience at the big league level.

But one of the quieter stories from this season has been the exceptional defensive play of second baseman Darwin Barney. The infielder has committed just one error in 2012 and should get consideration for a Gold Glove. Below is how he stacks up with some of the other elite second basemen in the NL.

and the error was at shortstop not 2nd base…

Barney is a class act! He plays baseball with respect for the game. He works very hard to improve on a daily basis. I hope he does get a Golden Glove not only for his superb plays but for his professional demeanor on the field. He is a winner!
