Player to Watch

Well for the Mariners it has to be Nelson Cruz. It was him and Melky Cabrera who were under the microscope following their return to MLB after some nasty drug issues. Baltimore gave him a shot last year and he led the AL in homers. This year he is doing it again and his batting average is so high he may be getting into triple crown territory because he leads all three categories (16 HR, .351 BA and 33 RBI)…caveat being it’s still May but them there is some pretty impressive numbers. The haters must admit that it is his talent that keeps him going, drugs or no drugs.
