Projected Two-Thirds Season MLB Statistical LeadersPosted: August 2, 2011
We’re two-thirds of the way through the 2011 MLB season. That means it’s time to multiply everything by 1.5 and see what happens! I did this at a third of the way and halfway 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.

Adrian Gonzalez and Albert Pujols continue to challenge the grounded into double play record and Tyler Clippard is closing in on the holds record. Bronson Arroyo is close to the home runs allowed record, but probably won’t reach it.
Kevin Correia has dropped to seventh on the wins leaderboard.
