5. How will Dee Gordon finish the season?
It’s been a tale of two halves for Dee Gordon.
Take his first half, where he proved to be one of the best hitters in the game, securing an all-star spot. His average hovered above .350 and he lead the league in hits for a long period of time.
Or take his second half, where Gordon has struggled to remain an above average hitter. I weighed these two sides of Gordon and wrote a piece on it — Can Dee Gordon sustain his success?
I drew the line somewhere in the middle, to which Dee Gordon decided to block me on Twitter and post this tweet:
Whatever motivates you, Dee. Since the article has been posted, Gordon has gone 5-11 with a homer, a triple, 3 RBI’s, 3 runs, and a stolen base.
Can he keep up this type of play?
