Tack on one more postseason honor for the Rangers, as Vladimir Guerrero was named recipient of the Edgar Martinez Award, given to the game's top designated hitter.

Signed by Texas as a free agent prior to the season, Guerrero put up a .300/.345/.496 line at the plate, with 115 RBI and 29 homers. David Ortiz and Jim Thome finished second and third in voting by baseball writers and public relations officials.

The American League champion Rangers have done well in awards season, with Josh Hamilton picking up the MVP and Neftali Feliz being named rookie of the year.

Guerrero wins DH award

Yes, this is really an award. The Edgar Martinez award. See, most DHs could catch the ball at one time in their MLB career and gradually lost the ability to do so. Edgar was always a DH, so he apparently could never catch. Hence, the award is named after him. Now, who won the Pinch Runner award?

Is this really an award???? The DH of the year. Unbelievable! What's next, the Todd Pratt award, given to the league's best backup catcher! What a joke!
