I like most of your choices. Although I'd make a few changes:

Most surprising hitter NL: Tie - Shane Victorino/Brandon Phillips.....not much was expected from either of these guys. Id rank Phillips as the 2nd best 2b behind Utley, could go 30/30. Victorino went undrafted in most leagues. Im glad I have both :-D

I'd also put Haren up there with Beckett. No one expected him to be this good.

Dye's been even more disappointing than Manny IMO.

I don't think injured players (carpenter) should be named on the dissapointing lists.

:-° Berkman will be higher on the MVP voting than Pence come seasons end. ARod should easily win the AL MVP i'd imagine. Prince will end the year at .275 avg so I doubt he wins...I'll give it to Holliday or Pujols.

He hasn't been pitching that bad, it's just that the Giants are brutal when it comes to run support for him. These are the runs they have put up for him:
