<p> All right, these are my picks for this years AL Silver Sluggers Awards to go along with my other award blog. I will probably get the NL one done later. </p>

<p> Catcher </p>

<p> I think the pretty obvious player here is Alex Avilia . He leads every AL Catcher in BA, OBP, SLG, and RBI's. He is second or third in hits and runs and he is also in fifth in homeruns. That is top 5 in pretty much every category. </p>

<p> I also think that Russell Martin of the New York Yankees and Carlos Santana of the Cleveland Indians should get a shout out because of there great play. Even though they do not come close to Avilia in contact. They are two of the best power hitting catchers in the league. </p>

<p> First Basemen </p>

<p> I think that this should be a very close race but in the end I have to take Adrian Gonzalez over Miguel Cabrera. They both have had outstanding years but Gonzo is leading and every category other then OBP and BB's. <p>

<p> I know that Cabrera has to play in a pitcher ballpark and has less at bats but Gonzalez has constantly performed even when his team was bad at the beginning of the season. I think that this will be a very close race with Gonzalez getting the nudge at the end. </p>
