Gold Gloves to be announced today

The annual moaning begins for the National League today as the Gold Glove Awards will be announced. Whom among the Astros could win?'s Doug Miller tells us that:

Kaz Matsui with a .991 fielding percentage, six errors and 5.0 RF could be a darkhorse, although his UZR (-1.7) hurts his cause.

Or Michael Bourn, with his 8.6 UZR, or Hunter Pence, with his NL-best 16 assists could be rewarded today.

Or the voters will just give it to the guys who won last year. Look for Greg Maddux to win his 43rd Gold Glove award today.
