Dodgers all over the triple crown leaderboards on July 21st, 2017

Batting average and RBI may be old news these days but home runs still get everyone excited. I’ve also noticed that batting average seems to get more play when your player is leading the league in hitting.

Now that Justin Turner has finally qualified let’s see what the leaderboards look like.
First up will be Batting Average. Justin Turner is of course on the top. Also above .300 right now are Chris Taylor and Corey Seager.

Next, we will turn to RBI. Cody Bellinger has dropped to 15th. This list is loaded with the best players in the game. Arenado and Murphy also lead the league in doubles. Charlie Blackmon also leads the league in Triples. Stanton leads the league in Home runs. Harper leads the league in slugging and OPS. The only leaders not in this list is the BA/OBP leader which happens to be Justin Turner at .369/.467. But OBP is not a triple crown category so he will have to wait until the next column.

Finally, the one triple crown leaderboard that anyone cares about anymore.
Home Runs. Cody Bellinger is 2nd on this list. Four 3rd baseman have hit at least 20 home runs. 8 1st baseman have hit at least 20 home runs. The rest are outfielders. No 2nd baseman, Shortstops, or Catchers.

    Wonder how this compares to 1962?

    Also

    How about Wandy Peralta for Willie Calhoun?

    • You know Tommie Davis was number one BA and RBI but nowhere on the HR leaderboard.

      • Actually, Frank Howard was 7th in the NL with 31. Was originally looking at the top ten for both leagues. 1962 was a good year for Dodger awards. Tommie winning BA and RBI, Don Drysdale winning CYA, Maury winning MVP, Davis 3rd, and Don 5th. Heck even Hondo was 9th. Four Dodgers in the top ten MVP voting. Everything but beating the Giants in the last game of the year with Don Drysdale standing in the bullpen instead of on the mound.
        Could see a case in 2017 right now of Turner / Bellinger / Seager / Kershaw / Wood getting MVP votes. Maybe even Taylor:)
