Miguel Cabrera is going to hit .730

The Cespedes Family Barbecue blog plays the same on-pace game lots of other people have ridiculously played with respect to Chris Davis‘ home run totals following his great first half. The difference: Cespedes Family Barbecue is doing it with its tongue planted firmly in its cheek.

Folks: the season started earlier than normal and the All-Star Break fell late. As such, referring to someone’s “first half totals” with the implication that only half the season has actually been played — or comparing those “first half” totals to players who actually only played half of their games in the first half — is useless at best. Misleading at worst.

    Seems reasonable.

        You have a way with women.

      If Cabrera said he was going to hit .730, I’d believe him.

        Do you think all these down-thumbers really took this seriously?

    Love that James Loney will finish with 192 games played.

      Cal Ripken likely has to be worried about his streak with a few of those bonus games played. You go James!

    That’s his OPS, right? ;)

    Excet for Mike Trout’s, of course

    OK! this one made me laugh

    Why did ARod have to schedule the break this way and mess everyone up. God that guy screws up EVERYTHING.

    This means that Chris Carter and Mike Napoli are BOTH on pace to set a single season strikeouts record.

      It’s like 61* — but the opposite.
