Andruw Jones- Jones has 49 HR's. The next closest player in any league has 41, which is Derrek Lee and Alex Rodriguez. It's obvious Jones will
win te HR title, unless he goes extremely cold, and Derrek Lee goes on a super hot streak.
David Ortiz- Ortiz tends to shine in September. A Rod has coled off slightly, and Ortiz jacked two more tonight to amass a total of 40 HR's.
It wil be a race between A Rod and Ortiz, but I believe Ortiz will come out on top.
Andruw Jones- Pujols is second to Jones with 107 RBI. Jones has 121 already, which is 4th most in the entire league, behind Manny's 122, and
Teixeira and Ortiz's 126. I don't see anyone in the NL catching Jones.
David Ortiz- For the same reason as above, he shines in September. Ortiz will hit many HR's for the Sox, which will resut in more RBI.
Teixeira does have a real chance, as the rangers are a high scoring team, but Ortiz always has people on base.
NL Batting Title
Albert Pujols- Currently, Pujols and Lee are tied at .338. Lee has been in a slump since shortly after the All-Star brak, and has to make up
a lot of work to beat Pujols. Pujols average will only change +- 10 points until the end of te season. With the Cards ensured playoff spot, Pujols
my rest some later games, which is going to maybe save his Avg from dropping any, so I thinkhe'll get the batting title.
Michael Young- Michael Young is the current leader in the AL with a .330 average. Don't pay attentio much to the AL, so I'm not entirely sure
about this one. Michael Young is consistent, so he should maintain his current average for the last 19 games of the season. Johnny Damon is batting
.321, so it is possible that Damon will catch him in the closing games of the season
