Today the MLB SIlver Slugger Awards were announced, and Mike Trout won yet another piece for his HoF career: the 2013 American League Silver Slugger Award for Outfield. Also named were Torii Hunter and Adam Jones

This season Trout, over 157 games, was .323 / .432 / .557 / .988. His OPS+, which led the league last year at 168, actually JUMPED this season to 179. 30 more At Bats and 33 more walks than in 2012, combined with 3 ewer strikeouts.

(UPDATE: how the hell did a Jay Bruce win out over Jayson Werth in the National League???)
