MLB average is like .330 so they're definitely pretty good, but the run-scoring environment the other hitters produce is closer to the 90-100 RBI range than the 130 RBI pace Delmon is currently on. In fact, no lineup in the last 8 years would be likely to produce a 115+ RBI season out of a Delmon-type hitter.
I'm just disagreeing about 'the Twins aren't exactly an offensive powerhouse' that you said earlier. They place between 2nd and 5th in RS, OBP and OPS. but I do agree with you on Delmon.
