Around The Horn: August30, 2011
(1) Andrew McCutchen one steal from joining the 20/20 club.
(2) Miguel Cabrera is simply phenomenal yet again.
(3) Carlos Lee on fire of late, RBI streak continues.
(4) Mark Buehrle is boring, but the guy is really good.
(5) Luke Hochevar pitching very well in the second half.
(6) Nick Swisher on fire, six homers in seven games. Has he lived up to my expectations? See 2011 Player Profile: Nick Swisher.
(7) Jose Reyes back from injury while Nelson Cruz is out yet again.
