Despite a horrendous fielding percentage until Machado was called up (and only finishing at league average) and spending most of the year leading the league in errors, three Orioles managed to take home gold gloves. And there's somewhat justified controversy around two of them.

Wieters absolutely deserved his. Nobody is questioning that.
Hardy had one hell of a season defensively and is one of the best defensive shortstops in the game. But Brendan Ryan is even better defensively and got snubbed.
Jones, while I don't think he's nearly as poor defensively as the sabrmetrics portray him, probably shouldn't have even been in the conversation for gold glove.
