Here is Vladimir Guerrero getting some love from Ron Washington. There was alot of that in 2010 for Vlad as he contimued to produce at an All Star level after being traded to the Rangers from the Angels. All that love and dedicated hard work paid off and now he is the 2010 Edgar Martinez Designater Hitter Award winner. His presence in the line up as a free swinger helped protect Josh Hamilton, Nelson Cruz and even Ian Kinsler to make the Texas Rangers one of the highest run producing clubs. Guerrero batted .306 with 25 home runs, 106 RBIS and scored 73 times in 129 games at the DH spot on his way to helping the Texas Rangers to the World Series.
Thanks Vlad for a great award winning season!
