Team Stats: 867 R (2nd), .343 OBP (2nd), 222 HR (1st)
Curtis Granderson: .262 BA, 41 HR, 119 RBI (1st in AL), .364 OBP, 25 SB
Robinson Cano: .302 BA, 28 HR, 118 RBI (2nd in AL), .349 OBP
Obviously the biggest surprise here is Curtis "I Love that Short Porch in Right" Granderson. Just as Ellsbury turned up the power numbers, so did Granderson.
Of course, it was already known that Granderson had some power since he hit 30 HR in 2009, but no one expected 41, not even him.
Then there's Home Run Derby champ Robinson Cano. Six years in the majors and he's still considered to be an undervalued and overlooked player.
His name has only started getting thrown out there as the guy to watch out for on the team which is a big feat considering he plays with Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez.
As for the rest of the team, underperformers run aplenty.
Mark Teixeira still hits home runs and drive in those runs, but I get the feeling he forgot that you're allowed to hit the ball to the opposite field. Nick Swisher, despite his great clubhouse presence and on-base skills, loves to strikeout with 125 of them this season.
Jeter's starting to play his age despite his great second half. A-Rod's no longer A-Rod, just Old "I'm here till 2017" Rod.
As for Jorge Posada, may his bat rest in peace. No seriously, let him leave with that postseason performance in everyone's mind.
We also can't forget how everyone except for Posada, Cano and Gardner pretty much disappeared offensively in the postseason. Sure Jeter and Granderson had their moments, but more moments were lost than gained.
