Another month down. Time to look at the studs and duds for May. Team of the Month: Dylema has done fantastic work with these guys. They surprised us in April, and this month they took the lead in the AL West. Surprise Team of the Month: The Blue Jays take 1st place in the tough AL East, and continue to strengthen the ball club. After being sellers to start the year, they have quickly turned into buyers. Worst Team of the Month: ty5oke summed it when he thought the wrong file was uploaded. No man... you really only have 13 wins. That's 6.5 per month though. NL Batter of the Month: Chipper is still doing it at 40 years old. Timpegoose should be happy with his .352 average and 20 runs scored this month. AL Batter of the Month: Jose Bautista is a big reason the Jays are in first. The dude absolutely murdered baseballs this month mashing 12 HR. AL Pitcher of the Month: SP Clay Bucholz helped Aagistar get himself back in contention. 4-0 with a 1.81 ERA NL Pitcher of the Month: Hey look! It's Clayton Kershaw again. recchem2000 will most likely never trade this guy. 40 K in 44 IP this month. AL Rookie of the Month: Once again Dylema has Montero win the award. Montero is having a great rookie season and is a big reason the Mariners are in 1st place. NL Rookie of the Month: Brett Jackson is making people believe all the hype. A huge reason for the Cubs success this year, and NDCOLTS1979 has a great player on his hands. NL Dud of the Month: KnightNoles has gotta be pissed with this. Edwin Jackson was supposed to make this good pitching staff, even better. Without Jackson's 5 starts this month, they would have had a winning record. In those 5 starts, he pitched 24 innings with 44 hits, 5 HR and 10 walks. AL Dud of the Month: Yordy Cabrera is our MLB Dud of the month for May. Why a player with a 3 contact is even playing at the major league level is absolutely beyond me. Dude is going to crash and burn soon and will be useless. ZCar352 has to have better options. Right?? Trade of the Month: This was a pretty big deal. Former highly touted prospect Travis Snider was moved from Toronto to Detroit for underperforming Austin Jackson. Toronto also added a couple of draft picks to make things even sweeter for Detroit. If Jackson can finally live up to expectations, this is a good deal for Toronto. If not? Well... at least Jackson doesn't have a mustache. Injury of the Month: Josh Tomlin's injury in Cleveland did not help JFace907 quest for an AL Central title. Although not a top of the rotation starter, Tomlin was off to a pretty good start. No more. He will need Tommy John Surgery and will be out until at least the All-Star Break 2013. If not have his major league career come to and end.
