Move over MVP, Gold Glove, and Silver Slugger awards, Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been awarded something much more prestigious than those piece of crap honors. Salty has been awarded the "Good Guy Award" by the Boston BBWAA.
Saltalamacchia, who hit 16 homers with 23 doubles last season after taking over as the Red Sox’ primary catcher, has been named winner of The Good Guy Award by members of the Boston chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America. The dinner is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 19 at the Westin Copley Hotel.
Additionally, veteran Associated Press baseball writer Howard Ulman will receive the annual Dave O’Hara award for reporting excellence through the years.
Bravo! They said he couldn't do it and he proved everyone wrong. Congrats, Salty, cherish it forever.
