Maddux Wins 18th Gold Glove Award

Congratulations to Greg Maddux, who picked up his 18th career gold glove award today. This has to be one of the most respectable records in baseball, with Maddux winning the award the last five years in a row and 13 in a row from 1990 through 2002.

To be a 42 year old pitcher with the stats he has, and to consistently be the best fielding pitcher in your league puts Greg in a league of his own.

This last feat may all but close the great pitcher's 23 year hall of fame career since his agent, Scott Boras, stated he intends not to return next season and retire. If this is the end of the line Greg, thanks.
