The new Dom Brown

Seventy-six days ago, Domonic Brown woke up with a .206 batting average for the season and a .232 average (in 167 games), for his career, which was teetering, at best.

Since then, he has quite simply been one of the best offensive players in the National League ... and Saturday was named to his first All-Star Game to prove it.

His career numbers through April 23, 2013 and since:
