In fact, I had no idea he was doing that well this season, and it'd be nice to see some discussion as to the reasons for his success, particularly from people watching him play every day (read: kaiser... )...

I can't tell you why he is hitting so well, except that he has shown steady improvement each year, and he plays for a manager who knows how to nurture young talent.
And regardless of how much some posters here are going to jump my case for daring to suggest that Prado is worthy of at least some recognition, I will continue to say that, based on relative draft value, I like a Prado pick at 184 ADP versus Cano at 31 (ESPN ADP).
Here's a good article from the Braves Bleacher Report newsletter arguing Prado's case to start 2B over Utley in the All-Star Game.
