TORONTO -- R. Manchester United Jersey Adidas .A. Dickey earned an American League Gold Glove on Tuesday to become the first Toronto Blue Jays pitcher to win the award. Dickey had a 14-13 record with a 4.21 earned-run average and 177 strikeouts in his first season in Toronto. He had only two errors in his 224.2 innings of play, qualifying him for the award as best fielder at his position for the first time in his career. The 39-year-old knuckleballer is the ninth Blue Jay to win a Gold Glove and the first since outfielder Vernon Wells in 2006. St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina won his sixth straight Gold Glove award Tuesday, making him one of four players in the World Series rewarded for superior defence this season. Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia and right fielder Shane Victorino also were honoured, along with Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright. Boston has a 3-2 edge over St. Louis going into Game 6 on Wednesday night. Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado became the first rookie to win a Gold Glove since Seattle outfielder Ichiro Suzuki in 2001. Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons and Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado also were among the eight first-time recipients. "Its pretty awesome," Simmons said in a brief interview on ESPN during the awards show. The Orioles and Royals had three winners apiece, tied for the most of any team. Baltimore finished with the fewest errors in the majors (54) and set a big league record with a .991 fielding percentage. Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon took his third Gold Glove in a row, while first baseman Eric Hosmer and catcher Salvador Perez each received their first. "Ive got a trophy case back in Lincoln, (Neb.), so this one wont be the chip-and-dip tray. This one will actually go up in the trophy case," Gordon said. "It means a lot. The first one was pretty special, just because its the first one, but to be able to share it with two teammates makes this one the best one of all." Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy and centre fielder Adam Jones were repeat winners, as was Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez. His 22-year-old teammate, Arenado, became the 10th rookie to win. "Im still kind of in shock. I still cant believe it," he said on ESPN. Center fielder Carlos Gomez became the first Gold Glove winner for Milwaukee since shortstop Robin Yount in 1982, ending the longest drought for any team in the 57-year history of the award. Toronto knuckleballer R.A. Dickey was the winner among American League pitchers. Arizonas Gerardo Parra won in right field after taking the National League honours in left two years ago. Other recipients in the NL were Cincinnati second baseman Brandon Phillips, his fourth, and Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, his first. "Pretty cool," said Goldschmidt, who also won the Hank Aaron Award as the NLs top hitter this season. Now, a Gold Glove for Goldschmidt as well. Fits like a ... well ... you know. "Its a huge honour to get recognized," he said. "Theres so many great players around the league." Since 1957, Rawlings has presented Gold Gloves to the finest fielders at their positions. Managers and coaches vote for players in their league but cannot choose their own guys. For the first time this year, Rawlings added a sabermetric element to the balloting. The SABR Defensive Index made up about 25 per cent of the process. "Wow, hard work pays off," Phillips said. "I take pride in my defence and try to go out there to make the pitching staff feel comfortable while theyre on the mound. I like being the pitchers best friend. People overlook defence these days." Six teams accounted for 14 of the 18 winners. Only two clubs had multiple winners last season, when the Orioles claimed three and the New York Yankees two. "To win three Gold Gloves this year was very impressive I think for our team, for our organization," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "These young men who won these Gold Gloves have worked their tails off defensively, and the thing that impresses me so much is I think these kids are only going to get better and better defensively." Rawlings announced three finalists at each position last week. Tampa Bays entire infield was picked, but none of those four players won. Baltimore led all teams with six finalists, including first baseman Chris Davis, right fielder Nick Markakis and catcher Matt Wieters. At perhaps the most competitive spot, the 21-year-old Machado supplanted Texas Adrian Beltre and Tampa Bays Evan Longoria, who combined to win the previous six AL Gold Gloves at third base. Machado became the first Orioles third baseman to win since Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson took the last of his 16 straight in 1975. http://www.manchesterunitedproshop.uk/axel-tuanzebe-man-utd-jersey.html .B. -- Christophe Boivin forced extra time then scored again in a shootout to lift the Acadie-Bathurst Titan to a 4-3 win over the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the lone Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game Thursday. http://www.manchesterunitedproshop.uk/joel-castro-pereira-man-utd-jersey.html . Luol Deng was out with flu-like symptoms, and Kyrie Irving, who missed shootaround because he was ill, fought through his sneezing spells to help lead the Cavaliers to a 115-113 win over the Washington Wizards on Friday.Toronto FC appears to have delivered on that international splash they promised their fans. According to the UK-based Daily Mirror, Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has agreed to a four-year offer to join Toronto FC. The move - expected to take effect during the January transfer window - is believed to be worth £90,000 per week and is also believed to include a £6 million transfer fee to Tottenham. On Wednesday the MLS club said the report is "inaccurate." Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke promised an upgrade to his MLS franchises talent pool in late September, promising: "Im going to be in Europe in the next few weeks to find two world class strikers for that soccer team once and for all - stop the chatter and perform and delivver. http://www.manchesterunitedproshop.uk/michael-carrick-man-utd-jersey.html. " When asked about the mission and whether he thought a franchise-altering talent like former Los Angeles Galaxy addition David Beckham was to be had, he did not mince words. "Are we going to be able to get a player as good or better than David Beckham? Yes," Leiweke told the press. The 31-year-old Defoe will earn a raise of £28,000 per week over his current salary. Defoe has been held goalless in eight Barclays Premier League appearances with Spurs this season, but has registered two goals in two League Cup games as well as seven goals in five Europa League appearances. The striker has earned 55 caps with Englands senior mens team, scoring 19 goals and appeared for England in both the 2010 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2012.
