Rem Murray

The center isn't Edmonton's biggest star but its most unlikely contributor. After being sidelined nearly two years with a neurological disorder, the veteran is in his first Stanley Cup finals. He's so happy to be an Oiler, he's paying to be one-returning a $1 million insurance payout he got when his career seemed over.

Jered Weaver

Jeff's little brother, 23, threw seven shutout innings in his big league debut and may have snagged a spot in the Angels' rotation.

Hardly a winner to be found. Only Texas (26-24) was over .500. The A's were cold (they'd lost eight of nine), the Mariners-and .219-hitting Adrian Beltre (right)-were colder (four straight), and there's nary a West pitcher in the league's top 10 in wins.
