Coming in to today, Junior's line for August is: .289/.386/.474

With 2 more hits today, it seems he's getting back to his old self. This would be HUGE for our offense as Griffey/Encaranacion/Dunn, if they're all hitting, will produce a ton. Seriously, if Jr is hitting, this lineup is downright scary:

Freel
Hatteberg
Griffey
Encarnacion
Dunn
Aurilia
Phillips
Ross

There's not an easy out in the bunch and the top of the lineup sees a ton of pitches. While I wouldn't go so far as to say our season depends on Junior, I think a hot Griffey could carry us to the playoffs.
