May MLB Surprises

The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies leading the American and National League East divisions at the end of May is no surprise.


The Cleveland Indians and Arizona Diambondbacks leading their divisions is a surprise though. The Indians are 5 games up on the Detroit Tigers and the Dbacks have a slim half game margin over the San Francisco Giants.

On the opposite end of the spectrum is the Minnesota Twins with a MLB-worst 17-36 record. They have allowed 91 more runs then they've scored this season. Many predicted them to win the AL Central. Ouch!

Other Surprises:
*Matt Joyce leads all of baseball with a .370 batting average.

*Jose Bautista has actually improved upon his breakout performance last season and is currently batting .36./1.290 with 20 HR. He's no fluke ladies and gentlemen.

*Lance Berkman is having a bounce back campaign and then some to the tune of a .338 average and 1.069 OPS. He's not dead!

*Curtis Granderson has smoked 17 homeruns.

*Kyle Lohse and Kevin Correia are tied for the MLB lead in wins with 7.

*Jair Jurrjens (1.51) and Josh Beckett (1.80) lead their leagues in ERA.

*Sluggers Dan Uggla (.178/.568) and Adam Dunn (.185/.665) are struggling to make an impact with their new teams.

*John Danks already has 8 losses with the White Sox after only suffering 11 all last season over 32 starts.

*Brian Fuentes has 7 losses and he's a freakin' relief pitcher.

*Closer extraordinaire Joakim Soria has removed himself from that role because he's ashamed of his 5 blown saves.
