So does Giambi demonstrate some sort of clubhouse leadership aging curve?

For the Twins: I don't think it's Mauer--too quiet and boring frankly. Cuddyer was the guy for a long time. I think the clostest now is either Morneau or Perkins.

I always heard the Rickie Weeks was a big clubhouse leader for the Brewers, but I think that has shifted to Lucroy. Kyle Lohse seems to be a leader for the pitching staff.

I'm not sure why, but the first player that came to mind for the Angels was Howse Kendrick.

As a Rangers fan, I am fairly confident that after Mike Young left the team, Ian Kinsler stepped up as the clubhouse guy. Beltre tends to lean towards the Latin players, but Kinsler seems to be the "face" guy.

Also, Howie Kendrick. Oops.

Albert Pujols - not a leader. Torii Hunter probably a leader. LaTroy Hawkins - leader.
