Numbers by month:

April - 48 ABs, .333 avg, .889 OPS
May - 114 ABs, .360 avg, .906 ops
June - 100 ABs, .380 avg, .961 ops
July - 34 ABs, .324 avg, .861 ops

Freddy hasn't had back-to-back hitless starts since May 5 and 6. He's hitting .323 vs. righties and .478 vs. lefties. Over .400 at home and .314 on the road....I can go on quoting splits but I won't.

The point is that he's not showing any "fluky" splits. He didn't have one month that was absurdly better...he hasn't gotten a freakish number of ABs vs. lefties, etc. etc. The kid's for real. I think he hits .320 in the second half easy, unless he really fatigues.

The runs and RBI's are real too. Offensively the Pirates aren't as bad as everyone thinks they are. If you normalize his stats to a 600-at bat season, he's projecting to 101 runs and 98 RBIs. If those numbers still make him a 1-category player, then you're in a much shallower league than I am.

Freddy definately isn't no fluke. I believe he will continue his success into the second half and have as good if not better performance than the first half.
