The Senators' offense was led by future Hall of FamerGoose Goslin, who was one of the youngest players on the team. He drove in a league-leading 129 runs. Walter Johnson had another outstanding year, winning the American League pitching triple crown and being voted Most Valuable Player. He anchored a staff that allowed the fewest runs in the league. Reliever Firpo Marberry paced the circuit in saves and games pitched. Manager Bucky Harris, who was also the team's starting second baseman, was the highest paid player on the team, earning $9,000.
