Guerrero's still got it after all

What a joy it has been to watch a rejuvenated Vladimir Guerrero hit the way he used to with the Montreal Expos. The current version manning the designated hitter role for the Texas Rangers is hitting like the old version, the one most of us never expected to see again. Guerrero, now 35 and clearly not on his last legs, homered twice and knocked in five runs in Kansas City on Tuesday. He's hitting .347 and on pace for 43 home runs and 150 RBIs!
Guerrero, who was taken in Round 15 of ESPN average live drafts this season, really does look like his old self, swinging at everything, driving the ball with authority, hitting for average despite caring little about plate discipline, even stealing the occasional base. Last legs? Not quite yet.
