Silver Lining Season Makes Bautista a Silver Slugger
Another day, another award for Jose Bautista. This time, the Blue Jays outfielder/third baseman/beard aficionado picked up the 2010 Silver Slugger Award.
This one was basically a no-brainer as Bautista led the major leagues in home runs and he dwarfed his closest competition in the AL (Paul Konerko) by a Jhonny Peralta season’s worth of home runs (15).
So now Jose Bautista is the Blue Jays single season home run record holder, the 2010 American League Hank Aaron Award winner, and a 2010 Silver Slugger Award winner.
All I can say is Jose better use the money from his impending offseason raise to build an awards wing extension on his house.
One last thing: I don’t know if this is a freaky coincidence or what, but the filter I used in Photoshop for the above photo was called “BAS Relief”. Who knew the Bautista Appreciation Society even had it’s own Photoshop filter?
