Kendry Morales learned to crush the ball.  Mike Napoli learned to hit for average. Juan Rivera kept himself in the lineup.  Erick Aybar became an average hitter (a great thing when you're a strong fielding SS).  Wood and Rodriguez have progressed towards being viable everyday players, though they still have more work to do.  Even Kendrick looks like he's shaken off his early slump and is back to being the HK-47 hitting droid.

It's been a great year for Mickey Hatcher's lineup.  The only drawback is the fall from greatness for Vlad.
