The REAL Silver Slugger Awards

This is who I think deserves to win the meaningless silver slugger award- based on wOBA, and from my limited understanding, this appears to be the best metric to judge offensive players, but DME could tell me wrong

C- Joe Mauer (Twins)- How does he not win every award he can this year?
1B- Kevin Youkilis (Red Sox)- not Carlos Pena
2B- Ben Zobrist (Rays)
SS- Derek Jeter (Yankees)
3B- A-Roid (Yankees)
RF- Shin-Soo Choo (Indians)- although Zobrist leads all RF...
CF- Torii Hunter (Angels)
LF- Jason Bay (Red Sox)
DH- Adam Lind (Blue Jays)- I don't know if they have a Silver Slugger for DH but Lind has been the best.

C- Brian McCann (Braves)
1B- Albert Pujols (Cardinals)
2B- Chase Utley (Phillies)
SS- Hanley Rameriz
3B- Mark Reynolds (OK, Kung Fu Panda has the better nickname and beat Reynolds by .15 in wOBA, but come on, look at the year Reynolds had)
RF- Justin Upton
CF- Matt Kemp (although he's .01 behind Andrew McCutchen in wOBA, which guys would you rather have?)
LF- Ryan Braun (Brewers)
P- Micah Owings (Reds) - How long will it be before a team Rick Ankiel's him?
