    Never is along time.

    Josh has been slumping a bit, hitting only .225/.288/.437 over his last 18 games. His average has been dropping like a rock and his HR and RBI leads are in jeopardy too. Hopefully he can pick up the pace a bit.

    IMO, Hamilton has a very good chance this year. His leads in HR and RBI are strong, although he must stay healthy. That has always been the main concern for Hamilton, as we know. The difference this year is in the average race. There isn't another hitter (beyond Hamilton) in the BA race who can be counted on to hold up. If Jeter was 10 years younger, then he could be a good bet. None of the rest of the top 6 in the BA leaderboard are singles and doubles hitters. Instead, they are home run hitters who just happen to have high BAs for the time being. Meanwhile, Hamilton's swing has always been worthy of a BA title.
    Miguel Cabrera is always a threat in the BA department. He had 2 hits tonight and his average is up to .321. Meanwhile Hamilton's has been dropping like a rock. He's currently at .347. Cabrera could make up that ground in a week or two easily.

    Props to Adam Dunn for rebounding the way he did.

    But overall league batting averages are pretty low, like .255.

    I'd be happy if Harper passes Sadaharu Oh's 868 career home runs.
