Lemire says Ike Davis should have won GG

Joe Lemire feels Ike Davis should have the Gold Glove for 1B in the National League, using ‘new statistics beyond the simplistic count of errors and measure of fielding percentage.’

Instead, league managers and coaches gave the award to Albert Pujols.

“Davis certainly established himself in his rookie season, proving more than capable on scooping throws and making more than a few highlight reels,” Lemire writes.  However, “he lacked Pujols’ name recognition.”
