Does he have a shot (well, of course he HAS a shot)? His chances looked dim on July 29th after an 0-3 left him at .353. Since then he has gone 36-84, batting .480. Yeah, after "dropping" to .353. Mauer goes on a .480 tear to get him up to .380 on the year. I don't think he keeps it up, but wow can this dude hit.
