BASEBALL: Beltre

It's official, as Bill Simmons would say: Adrian Beltre has made The Leap. Here's his line since his breakout game July 26 against the Giants:

GABH2B3BHRRRBIBBKSBAvgSlgOBP
24943572518206144.372.649.410


(Yes, I'm one of those old-fashioned types who puts slugging average ahead of OBP). For a supremely talented player who snoozed through the first half of the season, that's something to write home about, and it's a huge reason the Dodgers are pulling away in the NL wild card race.

(UPDATE: As you can tell, I'm going to have some trouble figuring out how to do stat lines on the Blogger software. Bear with me!)

UPDATE after moving to MT: Finally learned the code to fix all the stat tables!
