Nelson Cruz won another Silver Slugger award Thursday. The 37-year-old Cruz, also a Silver Slugger victor in 2015, hit.288 with 91 runs, 28 doubles, 39 home runs, 119 RBIs, a.375 on-base percentage, a.549 slugging mark and a.924 OPS in 155 games in 2017. In 2017, Blackmon captured the National League batting title with a.331 batting average while leading the Majors with 213 hits, 137 runs, 68 multi-hit games, 387 total bases and 14 triples. He led the American League in RBI and ranked fourth in home runs, fifth in slugging (.549) and fifth in OPS (.924).

The Giants didn't hit home runs, and Posey was no exception, but he was undoubtedly the team's most consistent bat.

Cruz led the Mariners in games, runs, home runs, RBIs, walks, on-base percentage, slugging, OPS and extra-base hits. He also set new Major League records with 103 RBI and 383 total bases from the leadoff position.

Any award attributed to the 2017 Giants should be relished, and one that involves the word "slugger" should particularly be cherished, given the Giants were second to last in batting stats. Upton won Silver Sluggers in the National League in 2011 and 2014.

The two All-Stars are the first pair of Astros teammates to win Silver Sluggers in the same season since 1999 when Jeff Bagwell and Mike Hampton took home the award.
