    Point of comparison:

    Cabrera and Sanchez duking it out for the "batting title", yet there really is no comparison to them as hitters. Cabrera is OPSing at 1.001, which is in the rarified air of Pujols, Berkman, Bonds, and Howard. Sanchez' OPS sits at .855, which is points behind our Richie (.856) and Adam (.858). Yet, he gets a standing O as if he's accomplished something with a high BA.

    Nice play by Harang, reaching down (its a long way down for him) to snag the ball hit up the middle.

    Encarnacion and Dunn have provided a huge hole in the middle of the lineup as of late.
