Minky on fire (well, kind of)

Doug Mientkiewicz was the target of a lot of grief this month, and justifiably so.

But Minky is 3 for his last 9 with two doubles. He is swinging with much more authority; having convinced himself his back is fully healed.

I fully understand how small of a sample that is, but he has hit the ball hard almost every time up and his batting practice sessions are much sharper than they had been.

I’m not suggesting that Mientkiewicz will win the Silver Slugger but he’s not going to be the stiff many people believe he will be.

“It’s a process,” he said earlier today. “I’m going to get there.”

DON’T FORGET: If you haven’t already, vote in the poll over to the right. Who do you want starting on Opening Day?
