I don't know what to make of this guy. My first gut instinct as much as a week ago was that he was just on a hot streak. Looking at his brief batting history, he didn't hit for power or average, but he's been tearing things up consistently. Someone recently offered me a trade of Delgado and Hillenbrand for Helton and Beltre, but I turned down the trade on the basis that Helton is a bit better than Delgado, and the improvement of Hillenbrand over Beltre (if there was any) wouldn't be enough to justify the trade. Beltre has been hot lately, but doesn't have the rbi's and hr's of Hillenbrand.
What are your takes on Hillenbrand? If I had him, I'd consider trying trading him while he's hot, but that's an iffy opinion, I admit,
