A brief update

David Cooper is now longer batting .400 for Las Vegas.  He's now at .379, collecting two-hit games the past three days and in 11 of his last 16 games.  Home/road splits?  All right:  he's batting .379 on the road (.450 OBP) and .379 at home (.457 OBP).

That, it would seem clearly to me, is the makings of a .300+ hitter in the Majors.  The question is, with Adam Lind at first base and Mike McDade breathing down the back of his neck in Double-A, will Cooper get his shot with the Blue Jays or is he merely trade bait?
