Not that Delmon Young and Joe Mauer are competing with each other

Not that Delmon Young and Joe Mauer are competing with each other
By Eric Black

But has anyone noticed that, as of today, more than 40 percent of the way through the season, Delmon is ahead of Mauer in pretty much every offensive category, by which I mean batting average, home runs, rbi, slugging average, OPS. Also stolen bases.

Mr. Mauer leads in doubles and, because he draws more walks, in on-base percentage.

Just sayin’.

My son and I have been hard on Mr. Young these last coupla years, so you gotta note these things.
