Greg Dobbs gets three hits, raises average to .359. . .

. . .that was the headline staring back at me as I looked at the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel today. It looks like Greg Dobbs is back in 2008 form. In 73 plate appearances for the Marlins this season, the third baseman is hitting .359/.411/.500 with 17 starts. His 12 RBI are more than three Phillies regulars -- Jimmy Rollins, Wilson Valdez, Carlos Ruiz -- and his 12 runs ties him with right fielder Ben Francisco.

Dobbs finished with just 15 RBI and 13 runs for the Phillies last season. He's playing a lot more this year for Florida. Last season, he did not reach 73 plate appearances until June 19. In his last two years in Philly he hit .221 in 345 plate appearances.
