Chase Utley For GloveLock
We received this in our inbox today. At least Chase got something out of getting hosed* out of another GG...
"GloveLock is proud to announce an advertising partnership with Philadelphia Phillie Chase Utley.
GloveLock Inc. was formed in 2000 after many frustrating years of watching great defensive players get their rightful award stolen by Silver Sluggers or fan favorites. We specialize in assisting those players that excel in the areas of fielding statistics (UZR, Defensive Win Shares, etc.) in overcoming typical obstacles that hinder Gold Glove accumulation.
Our record for getting our deserving clients Gold Gloves is unmatched. Take our first client, helmeted glove-man John Olerud, who was flat robbed in 1999 when the Gold Glove went to Rafael Palmeiro. With the help of GloveLock, Olerud secured his award in three of the next four years. Also, consider that we did not represent a single American League shortstop this season. If Cliff Pennington or Alexei Ramirez had hired us, Derek Jeter would not have pilfered that award.
So here is to Chase Utley, winner of the 2011 Second Base Gold Glove..."
