FAST FACTS
Aside from Pe�a and Drew, the only teammates to finish in the top 10 were oft-injured Cubs pitchers Mark Prior and Kerry Wood (sixth and seventh, respectively).... Red Sox DH David Ortiz has said of the 6'3", 245-pound Pe�a, a part-timer: "His power is unbelievable.... Nobody hits the ball like Mo—nobody." ... Drew signed a five-year, $70 million deal in January; he's batting .244.... Cabrera, who throws in the high 90s, leads the AL in walks with 41.
