Congrats to Brian on his fifth consecutive Silver Slugger award.
??? Post says third straight, and fourth overall.

to vote for players on their own team."
"Past winners of the Louisville Silver Slugger Award include such
*legends of the game* such as Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Pete Rose,
Cal Ripken, Jr., Don Mattingly, Ryne Sandberg, Barry Bonds and Sammy
-- the emphasis above is mine.
