    I thought I would take a look at a couple of guys who are a big surprise in terms of where they are on the league leaderboards. As always, many players will outperform (or under perform) all expectations.

    Andres Torres (New York Mets)- Torres has a 5 overall contact. That's right a 5. But guess what? He is second in the Majors in batting average with a .381 batting average playing every day. He's also second in the majors in slugging % at .691. And he has 6 triples already. Can he keep this pace up?

    [​IMG]

    Chone Figgins (Seattle)- Figgins is tied for the league lead with 8 errors. Last year, in only 77 starts he had 11.

    [​IMG]

    Ivan Nova (New York Yankees)- Nova is 3rd in MLB with a 1.34 ERA. Considering he pitches in Yankee stadium, this is certainly impressive. Last year, his era was 3.70

    [​IMG]

    Carlos Marmol (Chicago Cubs)- Marmol leads the league with 11 saves, and is a perfect 11 for 11 in save opportunities.

    [​IMG]

    Jonathan Sanchez (Kansas City Royals)- Sanchez is struggling with his control, he leads the Majors with 21 walks in only 35 inning pitched.

    [​IMG]

    Marco Scutaro (Colorado Rockies)- Of all players to lead the league in runs scored, it's Scutaro. He's scored 23 runs and helped lead the Rockies to 1st place in the NL West.

    Wow Marmol is a perfect 11 for 11 on saves...now that's not very realistic :p In all seriousness though it is good to see him live up to his potential. As a Cubs fan in real life I always find myself on pins and needles watching him close a game out.

    Nice write-up. Nova has been my best pitcher so far this year.
