I’m not going to claim to know who’s going to lead the league in any category, but I do believe there are some players who have a better shot than the rest to lead the majors.
Hitters first, I’ll list five players in no particular order who have the potential to lead the majors this year.
I’m going to stick to the typical 5×5 categories. I’m also going to provide a longshot — much like I did with my individual awards post — for each category.
Top hitters in 2009
|Batting Average||Runs||Home Runs|
|Justin Mourneau||Grady Sizemore||Josh Hamilton|
|Runs Batted In||Stolen Bases|
|Nick Markakis||Emmanuel Burriss|
Top Pitchers in 2009
|Matt Garza||Jonathan Broxton||Francisco Liriano|
|Zack Grienke||Matt Cain|
Do you agree or are these completely wrong?
