Silver Slugger Awards Announced

You all didn't think I was going to pass up this opportunity, did you?

The great thing about this time of year is while I suffer baseball withdrawal, I can keep my mind occupied with the announcing of all these awards and now (beginning today) with trade speculation and drama. The fun really never stops for an MLB fan.

So with the Silver Slugger awards announced yesterday, it sure seems like a few players had a silver and gold year. In addition to their Gold Gloves, 4 players took home a Silver Slugger award - Dustin Pedroia, Grady Sizemore, and my two loves, David Wright and Joe Mauer. It was the second award for both Mauer and Wright. We sure know how to pick them at the LLR!

Other players who are polishing their silver today include Minnesota's Justin Morneau (making this the 2nd pair of Silver Sluggers for the Twins' duo - the only duo from that team to ever achieve this honor), Matt Holliday, Ryan Braun, A-Rod and Derek Jeter. You can check out the full list of winners here.

But in the meantime, here is my little photo tribute to this year's winners.

Has there ever been a better looking group of awards winners? Helps to ease the pain of the season...along w/ David Wright and guyliner, Jimmy Rollins ducking for his life and Boggie's boyfriends (*sigh*! good taste, girl!)
Keep it up, Ladies, I can feel the female sports mojo slowly returning!
