All The 2014 Triple Crown Categories May Feature Players On Non-Playoff Teams

 

Giancarlo Stanton has hit homers in 3 straight games and has 10 HRs in his last 30 contests overall.  The Marlins 24 Year Old OF has 5 HR streaks since the ALL - Star Break.  With significant leads in both the HRs and RBI, he may just win the NL MVP.  Should Stanton have a hot September for Batting Average, he may even run down a Triple Crown.  Miami is far enough away from a playoff spot to almost ensure they won't make it.

Giancarlo Stanton has hit homers in 3 straight games and has 10 HRs in his last 30 contests overall. The Marlins 24 Year Old OF has 5 HR streaks since the ALL – Star Break. With significant leads in both the HRs and RBI, he may just win the NL MVP. Should Stanton have a hot September for Batting Average, he may even run down a Triple Crown. Miami is far enough away from a playoff spot to almost ensure they won’t make it.

Giancarlo Stanton holds the current best marks for HRs (36) and RBI (102) in the NL. The Marlins slugger is 10 RBI ahead of Adrian Gonzalez of the Dodgers, and 6 bombs away from Anthony Rizzo.

The Cubs will not make the playoffs, so the nearest contender for the HR crown, on a playoff team is Atlanta’s Justin Upton.  Upton is 10 jacks off the lead, and is also 3rd in RBI for the National League with 91.

Both Lucas Duda (26 HRs) and Marlon Byrd (25 HRs) round out the top 5 and neither of their clubs will make the playoffs.

If Stanton could get hot, he trails the NL Batting Leader Ben Revere (.314 – .295 BA)  2nd and 3rd in the NL Batting Race are (Justin Morneau, COL,  .312) – and Josh Harrison of the Bucs (.310).

Buster Posey is 4th and .303 for the Wild Card leading Giants, and tied for 5th are Aramis Ramirez (.303) with the 2nd Wild Card team currently with the Brewers, and then Andrew McCutchen at .303. Read the rest of this entry
