The 2010 MLB season is only 2 weeks old, but there are already a handful of surprises. Some good and some bad. Lets take a look...
*Franklin Gutierrez, Scott Podsednik, and Placiod Polanco lead the MLB with 21 hits apiece. Where the hell is Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki?
*Pudge Rodriguez is batting a NL-leading .444 with 7 doubles. I would love to see this surefire Hall of Famer collect 3000 hits.
*Jose Guillen and Vernon Wells have become accustomed to garnering fans' angst, but now it's admiration with Guillen popping 5 and Wells 6 homeruns in the early going.
*Roy Halladay, Adam Wainwright, and Matt Garza have pitched 24 innings apiece, for an average of 8 ip per start.
*Tim Lincecum- 3 w, 24 k. 0.90 ERA...yeah, he's good.
*Jon Rauch, all 6 foot 11 inches of him, has taken on tall order of filling in for Joe Nathan as the Twins closer and is a perfect 6-6 in save opportunities.
*Livan Hernandez and JA Happ have made 2 starts apiece and nary an earned run allowed.
*The Rays, Yankees, Twins, and A's all have 9 wins.
*The Pirates (7-5) and Blue Jays (7-6) are above .500. For how long? I bet each finishes with a losing April.
*Jason Bay leads the Majors with 18 k's. The Mets can't get anything right.
*Hitless Wonder- Taylor Teagarden (0-18). He's a Texas Ranger, I thought they all hit?
*Matt Kemp has been caught stealing 3 times. You think between he and Rhianna's money he wouldn't have to turn to thievery.
*Nick Blackburn and Billy Tallet have allowed 6 homeruns each. TNT, they're dynamite!
*Unsightly ERAs- Jason Marquis 20.52, Kyle Kendrick 17.47, Craig Stammen 15.63, Daniel McCutchen 14.73, Chad Morton 13.50. The ghost of Cy Young would do better.
*The Red Sox are 4-8. Panic in Beantown?
