San Francisco's Pablo Sandoval continues right where he left off last year after winning the NL MVP. If you haven't looked at his ratings lately... you should. This is what a legit hitter looks like. Baltimore's Joe Mahoney won the AL Rookie of the Month award, and although I'd never heard of the kid, after looking at his ratings and performance think I will get tired of hearing about him soon enough. This could be your AL Rookie of the Year SP Jake Peavy had a great month for the Brewcrew going 5-1 with a sub 2.00 ERA. At 30 years old and with injury troubles in the past, this massive 4 year contract scares me. But Im sure Bigsmooth is happy with his production so far. SP Aaron Harang no hit the vaunted Texas Rangers lineup and he really looks to build on his excellent start from last year before being shut down by injuries. The Washington Nationals surprised everyone around the league with their ineptitude in April as they went 9-17. A pitiful start in a very solid division. This team has talent all over the place, and right now the manager has to be on the hotseat. Eric Hosmer is the last player I would think to be leading the Majors in: Average, Slugging % and OPS. Yoshinori Tateyama picked up 7 wins this year, in ONE MONTH to earn AL Pitcher of the month. Out of the pen, that's a whole lot of luck and a whole lot of close ball games. What doesn't surprise me this month is that Furcal is hitting a horrible .144 on the year. What does surprise me is that he leads the majors with 6 errors. In what is probably one of the biggest contracts in the history of Seattle Mariners baseball, the signing of Carlos Pena is turning into a closely watched subject. He currently leads the majors with 9 bombs, but he is only hitting .217. Thankfully his OBP is at .375. Will he be able to earn that $15 million per year contract and help Seattle finish what they started last year?
