Brewers Have a Slugger Who Is Pure Silver For A Second Straight Year

Yesterday Ryan Braun won an MLB award for the second straight season (last year ROY) and an award that he will probably win on a regular basis. Braun won his first Silver Slugger as he was one of the three OF chosen from the NL. The other OF were Matt Holliday of the Rockies (now A's) and Ryan Ludwick of the Cardinals. This makes the second year in a row a Brewer has won a Silver Slugger, last year Prince Fielder was the NL 1B winner (this year Pooh-Holes took that honor). Of course Braun was a deserving choice, and he didn't even hit that good in the final two months of the season. And even with that being said Braun's final line in his second season looked like this:
.285/.335/.553 (.888 OPS) 37 HR 106 RBI
The rest of the NL Silver Sluggers:
C- Brian McCan (Braves)
1B- Albert Pooh-Holes (Cardinals)
2B- Chase Utley (Phillies)
SS- Hanley Ramirez (Marlins)
3B- David Wright (Mets)
OF- Ryan Braun (Brewers)
Of- Matt Holliday (Rockies)
OF- Ryan Ludwick (Cardinals)
P- Carlos Zambrano (Cubs)
