The Texas Rangers Nelson Cruz has hit 7 homeruns through the first 11 games of the season. Most of you know this, but this is in case you're a Baltimore Orioles fan and only follow their AL East travails. The man is powerful. He's also batting .342, and 10 of his 13 hits have gone for extra bases...that's muscle my friends. This power surge should not come as a big surprise, as he clubbed 33 homeruns last season, and has hit 62 in his brief career, barely spanning 1000 at bats.
As powerful as Cruz is, Reggie Willits is not. The speedy whiteboy outfielder of the Los Angeles Angels has 669 career at bats with nary a homerun. In fact, he only has 29 extra base hits. Good thing he's fast, or he'd have absolutely no value.
