I have stated that his excitement and energy is one of the few things the Twins have going for them. Well his surge at the plate seems to be going hand in hand with the Twins surge, well maybe less sucky is a better way to put it.
Ben is hitting well, as of today his BA is .328 after going 2 for 7 today.
He has the highest BA on the team. His on base percentage is a respectable .353, he needs to slow down at the plate a little and get some more walks but whatever, he is still young.
He only has 19 runs and 9 RBIs, but that’s more to do with the lack of bats around him.
The kid has speed and has made some amazing defensive plays. Some Twins fans like to crap on him for mistakes he’s made, but I will take his heart any day. With a team full of a bunch of underachieving stiffs, Mauer and Morneau I am looking at you, a little fire is a good thing.
