If Quentin stayed healthy he would have been the American League MVP.

This maybe the first of many awards and accolades for him. I hope to see many moments of history here in Chicago from my seats. Congrats.

This thread deserves more posts. Too bad it happened the same day as the Swisher deal.

Congrats Carlos. The first of many MVP caliber seasons. :gulp:

I don't care what MLB has to say, he's still my AL MVP. If he can keep healthy next year and post the same kind of numbers, there's no reason he doesn't get it from MLB. He was as consistently good as they come.

Well deserved! Amazing that he missed the final month and still only finished 1 behind for the AL HR title. If only he hadn't gotten hurt he likely would have been MVP, and possibly taken us deeper in the postseason. Here's hoping for a healthy 2009!

I was hoping there would have been a press call, like Alexei had for coming in second for ROY, so someone could have asked about the wrist, but there were no quotes from him in the paper.

:redneck I love the part where he says BA was trying to get the best man job, but TCQ's going to make him park cars instead.

What is the Silver Slugger? Seriously. I've heard of it, but have never heard a definition.

From what I know, it's an award given to those players who performed the best at their position. Players and managers do the voting before the end of the season, but a guy's own teammates or managers can't vote for him. So in essence, others around the league and baseball recognized and acknowledged TCQ's awesome season, which is pretty cool.

The award started in 1980.

Dye and Crede are the most recent Silver Slugger winners for the Sox, both in '06. Mags won in '02.

Has anyone seen or found pictures of Carlos Quentin accepting his award, or just his actual award. I see on eBay someone has a pin commemorating that moment.

I heard today the Greg Walked presented Quentin with the Silver Slugger award. Any one else hear this or see it?

What's the difference between his award and his actual award?

It would be more appropriate if Greg HBP presented it.

Picture of his actual award meaning just the award not him holding it.

Does anyone have a better picture than this one?

I hope the "HBP" line does not go unnoticed. Well played sir! Definitely a good laugh.
