  • Bigger Suprise...So far

    Who suprised you more this year?

    Delgado: Did what we paid him too and didn't do last year. MVP front-runner
    Pelfrey: Came out of the blue to destroy other teams.
    Murphey: Came out of the blue to play good defense in an unfamiliar position and hit pretty well.
    Tatis: See Murphey and add retirement.
    Carlos Delgado
    Mike Pelfrey
    Dan Murphey
    Fernando Tatis

    Delgado isn't really surprising, he's just living up to what was expected.

    Same with Pelfrey.

    Murphy came out of the blue, but he was a prospect who looked like he had a future anyway.

    Tatis is the most surprising, because he hadn't even played in the majors for a while and was even retired at one point.

      They have all been a surprise to some extent. I'll go with Pelfrey who sure looked like a bust coming into the season.

        Personally, it's Delgado. I thought his career was over in May and he should have been released.

          I went with Tatis. The surprise is that he's kept it up. I figured after each cold streak the odds had run out and then he starts up again. Murphy, I never heard of, and a guy coming up and getting hot is not totally surprising. It took about a game to see he seemed to have a clue at the plate. Pelfrey has certainly exceeded expectations maybe even from before he set foot in the big leagues. Delgado has certainly been at this level but not for 2 years. I too thought he was done.

            Mike Pelfrey. At one point not too long ago, I honestly thought he was a bust. I give a lot of credit to Omar for not getting rid of him when he really sucked.
