Loving Rivas (and shutting up about it)
I have decided that, as long as Luis Rivas is hitting like he is right now, I won't say a negative word about him. I don't expect this to last very long, but I certainly wouldn't mind if he continued like this for, say, the next 10 years or so.
He's hitting .538/.538/.846 since coming off the disabled list and is up to a semi-respectable .279/.305/.434 on the year (the average MLB second baseman is hitting .271/.332/.402). Basically, if he hits, I shut up, because I have nothing against the man aside from his established levels of ineptitude from 2000 until about two weeks ago.
