Hi Dan:

I heard both stories this morning. I'm sure some people will deride the Gold Glove award with "he only won because A-Rod moved to 3B" but Jeter had a great year defensively. You have to go to the Stadium and watch him play to appreciate just how good some of his plays are.

I didn't think Mel would be back. I heard their AAA pitching coach is going to get his job; I don't know anything about him.

Oh, and Sheffield won the Silver Slugger award for RF. The MVP awards won't be announced for a couple of weeks but I'd guess that it will go to either Manny or Ortiz.
