J.D. first to win 2 Silver Sluggers in same year

BOSTON—J.D. Martinez had such an impressive offensive season that he pulled off an unprecedented feat on Thursday, becoming the first player to win American League Silver Slugger Awards at two positions in the same season.

The right-handed-hitting masher, who helped the Red Sox win the World Series, received Silver Slugger Awards at designated hitter and outfielder.

The announcement came just three days after many were stunned when Martinez was not selected as one of the top three finalists for the AL Most Valuable Player Award, which will be announced next Thursday.

Well, there has to be a first for everything….

J.D. Martinez has 3-in-100 odds to win the Triple Crown

“There have only been 10 hitters to win the Triple Crown since RBI became an official stat in 1920 — Miguel Cabrera (2012), Carl Yastrzemski (1967), Frank Robinson (1966), Mickey Mantle (1956), Ted Williams (1947, 1942), Joe Medwick (1937), Lou Gehrig (1934), Jimmie Foxx (1933), Chuck Klein (1933) and Rogers Hornsby (1925, 1922).”

Nothing new here, but hey, as of today JD leads in BA and RBI, and is one back in HR.  Do we care?  Sure!!!  It’s baseball, and it’s good.

Who’s got the over/under?  Bring it on, men and women.
