Denard Span, Minnesota Twins

Left: Denard Span with yet another single against the Tigers

I had the privilege (and chagrin) of watching left fielder Denard Span of the Minnesota Twins feast on the Detroit Tigers this past Saturday evening. Since making the jump again from AAA Rochester, Span is batting .297 with 17 stolen bases and 63 runs scored.

Span went 9-for-11 on Friday and Saturday nights against the Tigers, scoring four runs and knocking in another two. You cannot possibly hope for more from your leadoff hitter, especially against the pitching-loaded Tigers. I suspect that the rest of the world will soon learn how talented this 25-year-old really is.
