Silver Slugger

Josh Hamilton was named to the American League Silver Slugger team this year.  MLB’s offensive counter to the Gold Glove award.  I’m not really surprised by this.  He had an amazing offensive season.  The link has the complete AL and NL squads.  Hamilton is in good company on the AL team, with his Home Run Derby counterpart Justin Morneau, as well as Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Joe Mauer, Dustin Pedroia, Carlos Quentin, Grady Sizemore and Aubrey Huff (the best hitter of the guys who only get paid to hit).
