Not a bad first half, huh? Zack Greinke turned into the year's best story; Ryan Zimmerman turned (briefly) into Joe DiMaggio and turned (very, very briefly) Nationals games into must-see TV; Manny Ramirez managed to disgrace himself without derailing his team; Alex Rodriguez has been (relatively) drama-free since his return; and Albert Pujols, well, he basically played like Albert Pujols. What do all of those players have in common? None of them are the most important players to their teams in the second half.
