I thought he was talking about the award.
But the silver slugger award is given to the player with the best offensive contribution. Speed is a definite component of offense. Bruce can run rings around the plodding Holliday. He hit 70 points in OPS better with RISP. That more than makes up the marginal 30 or so points in general OPS.
Especially when all I was responding to was that Holliday had the "way better [offensive] year". He didn't.
