2010 Barking Carnival All-Big 12 Baseball Teams

New, comments

That's right, the first annual Barking Carnival All-Big 12 Baseball Teams. I could have let the fact that I haven't watched any Big 12 games not involving Texas this year bother me, but what's the fun in that?

And, much more importantly, letting that stop me would have gone against baseball tradition. If you don't believe me, just ask Rafael Palmeiro's 1999 Gold Glove Award.

I'm not going to kid anyone, these are pretty much based straight off of the final Big 12 Win Shares results. The only slight changes were made in the gold glove and honorable mention sections. Well, that and the DH position where I selected a first baseman as the first team DH. So, since I'm sure you're all on the edge of your seats, here they are:

Feel free to correct any obvious issues like incorrect positions, etc. The Gold Gloves were selected based on a combination of fielding win shares, fielding percentage, and plays made (putouts plus assists). Going by straight fielding win shares was inadvisable because there would have been eight Longhorns instead of six. That being said, it's hard to argue against the six that made the list when you look at the numbers. Suggestions are welcome from those of you who have watched more Big 12 baseball than I have this year.
