Alex Gordon NBA JAM Review - "He's Heating Up!"

Our beloved "Next George Brett" circa 2005 (not to be confused with Moose, circa 2011), has rapidly been climbing his way out of the early season slumpsies by crushing it* and an astronomical 3.4 Fld contribution.

Top 10 AL Players by WAR over the last 30 days via Fangraphs after the jump, along with Top 20 NL/AL.

*Not literally crushing, seeing how is has zero dongs, but proverbially via fairly sound numbers at the plate.

As good as 2011 was, his BB & K%'s are both better in 2012 as well. Do we want the pop back in his bat, or are you content with this?
