Crazy Helena stats

The Rookie-level Helena Brewers are about to clinch the first-half title in their division of the Pioneer League, and they're doing it with ridiculous offense numbers.  As Jim Powell pointed out the other night, the guy hitting .386 isn't even leading the team in hitting.  (Angel Salome, hitting .419, is.)

Yet another offensive force is making waves, as well, according to Baseball America's Daily Dish:

Normally, a player in his third year of short-season ball doesn't generate much attention, but Brewers outfielder Charlie Fermaint is opening some eyes at Helena in the Pioneer League, and is still just 19 years old. Just 17 when drafted in the third round of 2003 out of a Puerto Rico high school, Fermaint has homered in three straight games for the Brewers, and is batting .358/.414/.724 in 123 at-bats with 11 home runs and nine stolen bases.
