Team-By-Team At Game 30

We're almost one-fifth of the way into the season.  Reality is starting to set in.  That sketchy left-hander with the career 5.32 ERA is not going to bust out his career year and win 20 for you. But there have been surprises, both good and bad.  Here's a team-by-team look at items of note throughout the league.

Salt Lake City Trappers:  Huge turnaround (so far, at least) for the Trappers, who are in the thick of it in the anyone-can-win NL West.  Scoring up 16% form last year behind Trenidad Cruz (.297/11/26) and B.J. Dunwoody (.382/5/20).  Revamped staff has a 4.19 ERA vs. last year's 5.53.

Salem Witch Hunters: Just tied the Cardinals with an 8-2 run despite some slow starts: Brewington .248 BA & Posada 1-2, 4.44 ERA.

Rochester EliteDucks:  Surprise leaders?  Not really...won 87+ 9 of last 11 years.  Josh Garcia .291/8/18.

Pittsburgh Ellis D's:  Turnaround starting?  Season 28's #1 pick (13 overall) Danys De La Vega, just called up.
