San Francisco Giants: The 16 Best Moments of 2016
No. 5: Giants win Three Gold Gloves
There were a LOT of moments for the Giants this year that built up to this one, but the Giants winning three Gold Gloves absolutely validated the commitment to good defense that the Giants have made. Crawford won his second straight Gold Glove at Shortstop, while Panik picked up his first, giving the Giants the middle infield for N.L Gold Glovers. Buster Posey won his first Gold Glove, deservingly beating out Yadier Molina.
The best part about these three, is that all three of them were drafted, and came up through the Giants’ farm system. The influx of homegrown talent of the years has made the San Francisco Giants so flexible, with the ability to pay big money to get top level players to fill in the holes on the Major League Roster that they haven’t been able to fill. All this is a final validation and culmination of the Giants efforts in player development.
