Earlier this week Roch Kubatko reported that it looked as though Adam Jones would be winning an AL Gold Glove for his outfield performance. Today at 3 PM it became official.

“Is anyone surprised that Jones and Paul Blair are the only Orioles outfielders to receive a Gold Glove (Blair has eight of them)?

Al Bumbry played a pretty good center field. He didn’t have much of an arm, but that’s not a deal-breaker. The trio of Brady Anderson, Mike Devereaux and Steve Finley covered a lot of ground. Ken Singleton had the arm, but not the legs.”

Congratulations to AJ! I’m looking forward to seeing him bring home a few more gold gloves.
