This Past Week’s Hottest Hitters

Week 8: New Faces

This week’s list not only gives us some new faces, but is also giving us some down to earth numbers as well. On top of this list is last year’s runner-up to the AL MVP title, Detroit’s Magglio Ordonez with a line of 7/3/9/0/.478/.500 (R/HR/RBI/SB/BA/OBP) which just edges out the Phillies Ryan Howard’s line of 6/4/9/0/.276/.344 (R/HR/RBI/SB/BA/OBP).

I am not surprised to see SD 1B Adrian Gonzalez on this list, but I am surprised to see the Twin’s Alexi  Casilla. Both of whom had 10 RBI weeks.

NOT on the list for the first time in weeks is Houston’s Lance Berkman, but in his place is Ray’s rookie 3B Evan Longoria. He also had a 10 RBI week and a stolen base.

Rounding out this top 10 are the Brewer’s OF Corey Hart who is finally showing some pop, Houston’s OF Carlos Lee, Texas 2B Ian Kinsler, the Pirate’s OF Jason Bay and the Cub’s 3B Aramis Ramirez. All of whom also had a stolen base this week except for Ramirez.
