Daric Barton first 1B Fielding Bible Winner Not Named Pujols

Reading up on the preposterous Gold Glove "awards" this year in the AL (Jeter?), I came upon the Fielding Bible award winners for 2010 (via ESPN's Rob Neyer)...

Surprised to not see a post on this one: Daric Barton is the first 1B to ever unseat Albert Pujols from the award (!):

"First Base – Daric Barton, Oakland 

For the first time, Albert Pujols didn’t win this award. Daric Barton led all major league first basemen saving 20 runs defensively for the Oakland A’s in 2010. The runner-up, Ike Davis of the Mets, was a distant second with 13 runs saved. Pujols was an average first baseman in 2010, neither saving nor costing his team any runs with his play at first base."

Saved 7 more runs than the next guy? Damn. No wonder Beane talks about not moving Barton from 1B! :)
