Peguero and Bay have been the biggest surprises to me so far. Who knows who will end up where yet, there are so many possibilities and permutations it's a waste of brain power trying to prioritize them. It is indeed still just March but this one seems to have a vibe unlike any seen in too many years.
Thinking of the money spent on Silva, Figgins and Bradley is a downer but how about those Mets. They gave Bay $22MM to go away and we may have a keeper there and Santana has cost them and lost them over his contract years more than the M's payroll this season. That's gotta hurt.
Speaking of hurting the Yankees are going to have to cough up well over $200MM to hold onto Cano. While A-Rod, Jeter, Rivera, Ichiro and Pettitte are all about done and Teixeira has admitted heís on the downhill slope of his career. They canít afford to get punked by the Dodgers and they have to have Cano to stay relevant. The trouble is Cano alone can't make it happen. What would they give to have our farm system? I love it!

Texas loses their #4 or #5 starting pitcher, Martin Perez. Could they sign Lohse or trade with the Dodgers for some of their surplus???
Here is hoping they just try to fill the spot internally! Division just got weaker!

There 4thor5th starter the guy has 7 M.L. innings lets not go overbored. I like these early results sometimes when guys believe there good even when there not it carrys into there minds and the season lets hope we get lucky. Itodays game i think Morales might be the best trade we have made this dude can hit

Some of this will translate and some of it won't for sure. I think its just a perfect storm of Morales and Morse showing their plus power and Bay to some extent with Smoak, Ackley and Montero focused right away knowing they have to figure it out. Mix that in with Zunino and Franklin and a healthy Guti and a power surge isn't that surprising but 23 HR in 11 games will surprise anyone.
There's just less filler in camp too now that Carp, Robinson, Figgins, Olivo, etc are gone. I think finding upgrades for all the below replacement spots will be the reason this team "surprises" people. Hopefully there won't be as many wasted AB's by players who just aren't very good
