You could be an air hostess in the 60's

Adrian Gonzalez

He is nothing less than a freaking beast.  1st in NL in homeruns.  Top 5 in Runs and RBI.  Any team would be lucky to have him.

Standings notes:

4 of 5 teams in the AL East are better than .500.

4 of 5 teams in the AL Central are under .500.

Dodgers led the majors in wins regardless of Manny playing.  In fact, the Dodgers have the largest margin of games between first and second in a division (9 games as of this writing).  The other 5 divisions have less than 3.5 games between first and second.

The Rays have a +48 run differential, but have only managed to play .500 ball to date.  This is perhaps because the Rays have scored the most runs in the majors.

The Braves, Giants and Angels all have winning records despite letting more runs score than they have scored.

The Twins and Pirates have scored more runs than they've allowed, but have losing records.

Obligatory Indians note:  The Indians are 4th in runs scored, but tied for last in runs allowed.
