The Gold Glove award winners for 2012 have been announced.
Before we run them down, some quick housekeeping: Bear in mind that this year for the first time the outfield is being broken down into specific positions, so no longer will you see the Gold Gloves going to three center fielders, which was occasionally the case in the past.
Below in parentheses, you'll find each player's career total for Gold Gloves, including this year's award. You will also find this guy's opinion -- based on the numbers, personal observation and rep -- on who should've won.
