In the AL, the offensive league leaders board was dominated by two players. Joshua Hendrick of Texas tied for the league lead in Hits and led the league in Runs and OBP. 3-time MVP Albert Cruz of Cincinnati did his best to make a strong case for his 4th, leading the league in Home Runs, RBI, SLG and OPS.
In the NL, Kansas City's Benny Lee led the league in Hits and OBP. While, this postseason's most talked about player, Ahmed Ratliff of Philadelphia led the NL in Home Runs, RBI, Slugging and OPS, yet still wasn't a finalist for MVP! What's a guy gotta do!

In the AL, the league leaders board is dominated by one pitcher, Atlanta's Francisco Aramboles. He won the pitching triple crown leading the league in ERA, Wins and Strikeouts, as well as Innings Pitched and Quality Starts. His Strikeout total was the 3rd most in Cobbfather history (he now owns the four best single season strikeout totals in Cobbfather history) and he had the 5th most Innings Pitched in Cobbfather history. What a season! Honorable mention goes to Randall Washington of Texas who tied for the fourth most shutouts in Cobbfather history with 4.
In the NL, ERA Champ Douglas Banks of Buffalo also led the NL in Innings Pitched and Quality Starts. Don Monahan was the NL leader in WHIP and tied for the lead in shutouts, while Seattle's Paulie Flynn tossed an NL best 8 complete games and tied for the lead in shutouts. NL strikeout king Chick Munson of Austin also tied for, you guessed it, the league lead in shutouts.
