Gold Glove Awards are voted on annually by the managers and coaches around Major League Baseball. A sabermetric component was added in 2013, providing a statistical guide from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) to the voting body, but there are obviously still deep flaws with the process. Try not to get too outraged. Or go to town in the comments about which players got screwed. Whatever floats your boat.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
