You are correct, in this case the term 'raking' is deliberately used in the case of a guy who doesn't hit for power. Perhaps I should have used the term 'pounding' instead. The origin of the idea is that up here I've had the opportunity to see this guy play more or less every day for the last month or so, and this guy just kills the ball on a line almost every time he does hit, he hits a ton of doubles as his balls just seem to find the gaps, and he is clutch, his numbers with runners in scoring position (and especially with two out) just dwarf everyone else on the team and put several veterans to shame. The kid is mentally tough and big-league ready, and will be playing every day from here on out guaranteed, even when Koskie returns.
I sometimes forget that a guy like Hill doesn't translate as well to fantasy as he does to real baseball, but for the Blue Jays this year he has been invaluable.
