Paul Konerko — It feels like a year much closer to 2004 when I see that Konerko is the MLB leader in home runs. It is now six years later and surprisingly that statement currently is valid. Don’t get fooled into thinking that his low .198 BABIP means that his average should rise quite a bit. When he stops hitting home runs at his current machine gun pace, the negative impact of those flyballs getting caught on his average will offset the gains by a higher BABIP. Just be happy he’s on your team if he is.
Alex Rios — Last year it felt like the Jays sent the ghost of Alex Rios over to Chicago and, well, if that’s true it seems the rest of his body made the trip this year. Rios is hitting the ball hard and stealing plenty of bases—two things he seemed to partially forget last year. If only Aaron Hill, Adam Lind, Wells and Rios had synchronized their monster seasons, the Jays could have had an offense worthy of the AL East.
