Projected Mid-Season MLB Statistical LeadersPosted: July 5, 2011
We’re just past halfway through the 2011 MLB season. That means it’s time to multiply everything by two and see what happens! I did this at a third of the way through the season as well.
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.

|BK||16||6||*2 tied, see below|
*W Leaders: Jair Jurrjens, Justin Verlander, Roy Halladay, CC Sabathia, Kevin Correia

Okay, Kevin Correia is still projected for over 20 wins. Albert Pujols won’t break the GDP record any more, but Adrian Gonzalez may come close to it. Tyler Clippard is now projected to break the holds record and Bronson Arroyo may challenged the home runs allowed record. Drew Stubbs seems to be the new Mark Reynolds, but with about half of the power.
