I still haven’t seen an article about St. Casey’s assault on the GIDP record. He is STILL on a pace to do it.
18 GIDP that’s a pace for 39. The old Record is 36.
Also despite his .322 batting average he is ninth in the NL at 1B with a .789 OPS.
Despite batting 3rd for some odd reason he is 10th among NL 1B with only 35 RBI
There are 20 more 1B in the NL with more Home Runs. He has 3. One more than Ben Broussard had during one game.
Don’t you think maybe a guy making $6 Million a year, and occupying 1B the easiest position to replace, and the #3 spot in the order would garner some negative ink? Nah. Let’s pile on our 25-year old future star that produces at a .956 clip. Yeah that’s the ticket.
