A-Rod has been despised by Yankee fans and sportswriters for pretty much all of the 2006 season. Now we find out just how far that anomisity extends when we see that Joe Crede was voted the "Silver Slugger" at 3B in the AL for 2006. Never mind the fact that the only offensive categories that Joe Crede beat A-Rod in were Doubles (31 to 26) and GIDP (21 to 25). Not AVG. Not HR. Not RBI. Not OPS. Not SecA. Not EqvA. Not IsoP. Not RC/27. One might wonder then how Joe Crede would be chose to receive the Silver Slugger award. A quick trip to the wikipedia entry for Silver Slugger Awards provides all the details we need to know:

"Winners are picked by major league managers and coaches, who are not allowed to vote for their own players. "

Oh. So that's why.
