Don't look now, but Michael Cuddyer is the best hitter in the NL


First the Justin Morneau trade, then David Ortiz's 2000th hit and hurtful Minnesota tweet, and now Michael Cuddyer is on a hot streak. Great.

The former Twins outfielder picked a heck of a time to pile on the already fragile psyche of the Minnesota faithful, as he has shot up the NL ranks in batting average this month, now leading the National League in hitting at .331.

Going 9-15 in four games will do that, and here was the first performance of those four games.

At least Carlos Gomez isn't the best player in baseball anymore.

Although he is fifth.
