Golden Right Side

Looking at final season stats, not only should Jamey Carroll have the inside track on a NL Gold Glove but the entire Rockies right side of Carroll, Helton, and Hawpe is deserving.

Carroll committed only 3 errors at 2B, while the next closest 2Bman (Biggio) had 6 errors.  Carroll only started 102 games at 2B which could hurt him in the voting, but guys have won Gold Gloves with far fewer games than 100.

Helton (1B) and Hawpe (RF) each had only 4 errors which tied for the league low at their positions. They also each had the highest fielding percentages, plus Hawpe had the monster 16 assists.  

The Rockies led MLB in 2006 with 190 double plays executed.  Our defense doesn't get much attention but it is already a solid building block in place to help this team become a contender.
