Projected MLB Statistical Leaders

We’re about a third of the way through the 2011 MLB season. That means it’s time to multiply everything by three and see what happens! I have included the current MLB record along with the projected number for the leader in each category. I did this by taking the total games played for each player’s team and extrapolating their current stats based on that.

Hitters:

Statistic Record Current Pace Leader
AVG 0.440 0.374 Matt Joyce
AB 716 705 Jose Reyes
PA 778 769 Jose Reyes
H 262 229 Jose Reyes
1B 225 165 Starlin Castro
2B 67 57 Alex Gordon
3B 36 19 Jose Reyes
HR 73 62 Jose Bautista
R 192 131 Jose Bautista
RBI 191 140 Adrian Gonzalez
BB 232 140 Jose Bautista
IBB 120 32 Miguel Cabrera
SO 223 201 Adam Dunn
HBP 51 29 Danny Espinosa
GDP 36 49 Albert Pujols
SB 130 60 Jose Reyes
CS 42 24 Juan Pierre

Pitchers:

Statistic Record Current Pace Leader
W 59 23 Kevin Correia
L 48 23 Paul Maholm
CG 75 12 Roy Halladay
ShO 16 6 James Shields
SV 62 58 Leo Nunez
HLD 40 38 Rafael Betancourt
IP 680 267 Felix Hernandez
H 772 260 Jeff Francis
ER 291 143 Ryan Dempster
HR 50 44 Brett Myers
BB 289 131 Kyle Drabek
HBP 54 20 Justin Masterson
WP 63 26 A.J. Burnett
BK 16 6 Justin Verlander
SO 513 268 Roy Halladay

Yup, Kevin Correia is the projected leader for pitcher wins. I’m going to say that doesn’t happen? There are a few records that could possibly be broken. Pujols is on pace to shatter the GDP record, which is very interesting. Many of the pitching records are un-reachable ever, but the holds and saves records are still within reason, along with the home runs allowed record.

    I’d like to see a baseball park built that had short home run perches in the left and right field corners and a very deep center field alley. This way, I hope, we could challenge both the home run record and triples record, and yet have a park that was fan-friendly, allowing them to see the action (since the left- and right-field home run perches would be closer to infield). The outfield bleachers could be the very cheap seats and therefore probably also where a lot of weird things happened, mercifully far away from everyone else.

    or even Minute Maid Park? Crawford Boxes in Left and its 436 with a hill in center
