Magglio Ordonez and Placido Polanco both won Silver Slugger awards this year. I’d have to check and see how rare it is, but Polanco’s season was particularly impressive because he won both the Silver Slugger and Gold Glove. It’s the first time two Tigers have won the award since Mickey Tettleton and Travis Fryman won it in 1992.
I thought Curtis Granderson made a stronger case for a silver slugger then Ichiro did but outfield is one of those tough spots to call because you could probably find a handful more players who would in that class as well. Granderson was third amongst American League outfielders in OPS but Manny Ramirez was right there as well.
