Not even including the dinger he just hit tonight, James Loney in September:- 89 AB- 40 hits- .408 BA- .458 OPB- .745 SLG- 1.198 OPS- 8 HR- 31 RBIBy comparison, no one else on this team (entering tonight) could say they had even one-third those HR or RBI numbers this month.Oh, and who’s second on the team this month in BA, SLG, and OPS, at least amongst players with more than 12 at bats? That’s right. Matt Kemp.Just sayin’.Can we please drop this crap about the young players not picking up the pace now? Please? Loney has been the best player on this team, and it hasn’t even been close. We’re talking 1988 roided-up Ben Johnson running in the Special Olympics.More to come this weekend, and an announcement on Sunday.
