He is hitting better. No doubt. Going 1-8 would have constituted hitting "better," but I get your point. He may actually be hitting enough to produce runs.

Too bad almost 1/6th of the season is gone.

If he does start hitting now, it will be easier for me to accept that his changes to approach were working this year, and he was set back by thumb injury and illness.

We'll see.

No, LaRoche started hitting in mid-May last year. In fact, he hit worse in June than he did in May.

He didn't start hitting like a Major League first baseman until July, though.

That is what I was getting at. Sorry if it was dense.

The point being, he is hitting better, earlier this year than last. At least at the moment.

Man, I hope so. I need the Pirates to make a run and pull off a string of wins or I will cash in my chips very early this season. I'm starting to regret buying the MLB Extra Innings package.
