All Star Break

Melky Cabrera was the only OF not in our top 20 heading into the season. Other then him the biggest surprise on this list is obviously Andrew McCutchen. I am not sure his power will produce another 18 HRs in the second half, but the batting average has a good shot of staying above .330 come September. Lets just hope the HR Derby didn't screw things up. Melky Cabrera is my pick for player to not be on this list come seasons end.
