Adam Lind wins 2009 Silver Slugger Award

Ahem... Your 2009 American League Silver Slugger for DH is Adam Lind. (crowd roars and applause follow) As what is probably his token female collector and follower I am very proud of him, and very happy for him as well. Last season wasn't that great for him, going up and down, and being kind of a misfit as far as playing left-field. Despite his limited role as a DH, he has done what not many people can do as just a bench player and that is come up and smash the ball.

Being just a DH is not something many players can do even on a temporary role, they find it hard to stay in the game or to keep loose being that they are not in the field. Lind seems to have found his niche and become an anchor in the 4 spot on the Toronto line-up. So in honor of Adam Lind I am showing off the latest addition to my collection of his cards:



Enough about Adam, and onto another great player whose name also begins with an A, Albert Pujols. He took home the Silver Slugger award for the National League at 1st base for the 5th time in his career. Derek Jeter also won his 4th consecutive award at shortstop.
