No real surprise here - Kevin Youkalis wins first Gold Glove!

I'll update this with more info a little later, but I wanted to note that Kevin Youkalis became Boston's newest Gold Glove winner. Youkalis, who did not have an error in 2007, is the first Red Sox Gold Glove winner since Jason Varitek won a few years back. Mike Lowell won a Gold Glove while with Florida. IN more unfortunate new, Coco Crisp came in forth in voting for a Gold Glove given to the top 3 vote getters in the outfield. Of the three that won GGs, only Tori Hunter had a better play percentage, but votes are votes and popularity is a big part of it. Oh well, congrats to YOUK!
