Nothing in his K rate indicated that he'd hit above that last year, but he hist .282. He is on pace for more Ks this year, but his K/BB ratio is the exact same as what it was for the season last year. Right now, despite hitting almost 40 pts below last year's average, he is up 11 points in slugging, and is on pace to have more Rs, HRs, and RBIs than last year. He started off slow, but he has been on base all but one game this month. And his RBIs might be coming in bunches, but he has scored Rs in over half his games (and 10 out of 14 games this month). Maybe he's been a fluke for the last 1 1/4 yrs, but I'll ride it out until he proves the fluke to be true (not like I have another 2B option anyways).
