1B: Albert Pujols
Cardinals (all stats through June 1)
Pujols isn't even a below-average hitter in 2011's homage to 1968. However, you expect the best player in baseball to bring a bit more than .262/.333/.412 with 15 extra-base hits. Let this serve as a reminder that the "walk year" effect is a media creation cobbled together from selective data points and Swiss-cheese memory. From this point forward, you can expect Pujols to be, well, himself, but to date he's one of the biggest disappointments in baseball, maybe the only thing that's kept the Cardinals from running away with the NL Central.
Honorable Mention: Aubrey Huff, Giants. His .219/.279/.348 batting line and lousy defensive value -- he was a disaster in 14 outfield starts -- have made him one of the very worst players in baseball over the first two months. Two-year contract or not, the Giants have to get Brandon Belt into the lineup at Huff's expense.
