Derek Norris Back on the Hot Sheet

Jesus Flores is hearing footsteps. Derek Norris makes the Baseball America Hot Sheet two weeks in a row:
Why He's Here: .423/.483/.769 (11-for-29), 2 HR, 3 2B, 9 R, 5 RBIs, 2 BB, 4 SO

The Scoop: While many Nationals fans are probably counting down the days before the teams gets to draft Stephen Strasburg, Norris is at least giving them something to tide them over until the big day. Norris recently had a streak of six straight multi-hit games and his mature approach has impressed all season as he's hitting .325/.420/.619 while ranking third in the Sally League with 20 walks. He also ranks second in the league with nine home runs on the year and is tops with 30 RBIs.

I like Flores catching. Can Norris play first if we traded Nick?
