There are no significant team or player records that are in danger of falling by the end of the season. There are some minor personal milestones that could be achieved this year, such as Blackmon setting his single-season high in doubles or crossing the 500 RBI plateau for his career. Nolan will most likely hit his 250th career double and, with a prolific few months, could top his personal best average, OBP or slugging marks. Trevor Story is on pace to beat his batting average and OBP marks, and every run he scores extends his personal high.
To be honest, when I started writing this article, I was hoping that I would find a few more records that were about to fall … but that doesn’t look likely. Well hey, that just seems to be par for the course for this season.
It’s been a tough year my friends, but hang in there: The quest to get back to the playoffs has already begun.
