Adrian Gonzalez named NL Player of the Week

Player of the Week

These stats are filthy sick.

Gonzalez led the league in batting average (.607), slugging percentage (.964), on-base percentage (.645), hits (17) and total bases (27) and was tied for the league lead in runs (9). The San Diego native added two home runs, four doubles and five RBI over the week. Adrian tallied at least one hit in all seven games he played and is currently in the midst of a 14-game hitting streak. Over that time he has hit .450 (27-60) with seven home runs and 16 RBI. The left-handed hitter had four three-hit games, including a two-homer performance on July 17th at Philadelphia, to help lead the Padres to first place in the N.L. West.

Okay you're thinking, "Yeah but what's in it for him?!" I'll tell you, a Swiss Timepiece. That'd be cool if they gave him a pocket watch with a little chain on it. When he steps on into the batters box, he pulls a little time piece out of his jersey, checks the time and then tucks it back into the little pocket.

In recognition of this honor, Tourneau, the world's largest watch store, is proud to award the Bank of America Presents the National League Player of the Week Adrian Gonzalez with a Tourneau luxury Swiss timepiece.

I'm amazed at Adrian's level of concentration. All of this considering that he has a locker next to Brian Giles. You know he's getting flashed daily. Probably getting the "Padres Hug" which is defined as a fully nude bear hug from Giles. More then once I'm sure he's been on the wrong end of a wet rat-tailed shower towel as well. Then after all of this abuse he still has performances like this.
