"Who Are These Guys?" by the NL King

There are a number of players in the NL who have jumped up to the majors to have big 
years, which have been unexpected.  If you had some of these players on your team, you're probably doing quite well in the standings....

Hitters:
C.Blake - 12HR, 58RBI, 52R, 2SB, .271 AVG
On Pace for his best year in some time.

M.Bourn - 3HR, 26RBI, 67R, 37SB, .288 AVG
See what he can do if he hits enough

T.Helton - 11HR, 60RBI, 51R, 0SB, .324 AVG
Still not the roto stud he once was but he has had a rebirth as $20+ 
dollar player.

N.Morgan - 3HR, 34RBL, 56R, 31SB, .304 AVG
The late bloomer is shown to be a great speed guy.

M.Reynolds - 28HR, 68RBI, 67R, 18SB, .278 AVG
We knew he had the power but he has raised his avg by 40 points and 
the steals.

P.Sandoval - 15HR, 59RBI, 43R, 4SB, .330 AVG
Heard some good things about the man they call Kung Fu Panda but 
having a huge year.

J.Upton - 18HR, 60RBI, 62R, 14SB, .295 AVG
They say he would be great but did we expect it to be this year? And 
the steals.


Pitchers:

H.Bell - 3W, 25SV, 2.01 ERA, 1.07 Ratio, 48K in 40.3IP
Okay we knew he was the closer on opening day but having a dominant 
year.

M.Cain - 12W, 2.27 ERA, 1.21 Ratio, 108K in 131IP
Everyone has been waiting for this year for Cain

Z.Duke - 8W, 3.66ERA, 1.27 Ratio, 69K in 130.3IP
Pitching like he did his rookie year.

R.Franklin - 2W, 23SV, 1.21ERA, 0.88 Ratio, 29K in 37.3IP
In Spring Training they mentioned everyone for the closers job but him.

JA Happ - 7W, 2.97 ERA, 1.18 Ratio, 71K in 100IP
Who needs Doc?

D.Haren - 10W, 2.19 ERA, 0.86 Ratio, 146K in 148IP.
We were expecting a strong year but was anyone expecting a CY Young 
Year?

J.Marquis - 12W, 3.47 ERA, 1.27 Ratio, 64K in 137.3 IP
I know the K's aren;t great but he is pitching like a strong #3 
starter as oppose to a not so great #5 starter.

J.Pineiro - 9W, 2.95ERA, 1.08 Ratio, 54K in 128.3IP
Dave Duncan is a genius.

H.Street - 3W, 25SV, 2.55ERA, 0.92 Ratio, 48K in 42.3IP
What a year and in the Spring we thought he would be a middle man.

J.Vazquez - 8W, 2.98ERA, 1.07 Ratio, 150K in 133IP
We knew he was good for 12-13W with a good ratio & K's but he is 
having a killer year.
