Several players got off to absolutely torrid starts. Chase Utley has smacked 11 home runs while leading all of baseball in OPS. Chipper Jones, Derrek Lee, and Albert Pujols are all performing as expected, but the top hitters also include such surprising entries as Nate McLouth, Geovany Soto, and Carlos Quentin.
Meanwhile, the standings are looking like a fun-house mirror. Baltimore and Tampa Bay on top in the AL East? The A's and Cardinals challenging the big dogs in the AL West and NL Central? Big-hitting teams like the Yankees and Tigers have gotten off to slow starts, while the Rockies may be suffering from a postseason hangover.
