Now, this is a dubious distinction that Charlie Blackmon most likely does not want to have his name on, but this is the world we live in. If he is done with the Rockies after his option it really depends on his strikeout rate.
As baseball moves towards TTO, Blackmon has actually seen his strikeout rate decrease this season, so it’s possible that Chuck keeps the strikeouts low enough to remain in third as his contract years expire.
However, by the sheer volume of time, if Blackmon has a Helton-sized career, he will certainly eclipse the mark, he would have to average less than 50 strikeouts a year in order to not beat Todd’s mark. If he waits it out, this is one record that will certainly have Blackmon’s name on it.
