Does Valencia Give The Twins An Edge?

Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 2-4 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored against the Indians. Valencia scored the game-winning run in the 8th inning. The Twins have officially clinched a postseason berth. They haven't had a third baseman as good as Valencia since the days of Corey Koskie manning the hot corner. Could make a world of difference come October...

Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 2-4 against the Marlins.

Batting 6th, Ian Kinsler was 1-3 against the Angels.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 0-2 with 1 BB, 1 HBP, and 1 run scored against the Reds.

Sam Fuld was 0-1 against the Giants.

Craig Breslow pitched 2/3 of an inning on 1 BB and 1 K against the White Sox.

I think Valencia makes a HUGE difference for the Twins. You keep a good glove but add at least 100 points on OPS over Punto, if not more.
