A-GON WINS SECOND CONSECUTIVE GOLD GLOVE AWARD

Adrian Gonzalez capped off another standout season with the San Diego Padres by earning his second consecutive Gold Glove as the National League’s best defensive first baseman. Gonzalez committed just seven errors on 1,367 chances at first in 2009. He also put together another solid year at the plate, batting .277 with 40 homers and 99 RBIs. In four seasons with his hometown Padres, the 27-year-old two-time All-Star has stroked 130 homers and driven in an even 400 runs while hitting a cool .286.

Gonzalez has two years left on his contract and has been sought by several teams looking for a trade. He and his wife Betsy are currently spending the month in Europe.
