Last night, the Rawlings Gold Glove awards were chosen, sparking something of a clash between traditionalists and stat-gurus (though most people agree that Andre Ethier's selection was, um, generous).
Continuing the awards fun are the Silver Sluggers, given to the best hitters at each position in both leagues. With less guesswork, this award is generally a better indicator of performance than the Gold Glove award.
The Silver Sluggers will be announced at 7 PM EST tonight (Nov. 2, 2011). Yesterday, I announced my picks for the National League—now onto the Junior Circuit.
