Cardinals backup first baseman Matt Carpenter is leading the team in RBIs, with only 22 ABs in 11 games. He's on a pace for 162 RBIs, but not qualify for the batting championship, with only 324 ABs.

Yesterday Kemp lost the BA and RBI leads, so he is no longer on a pace to win the triple crown. (LA should trade him while his value is still perceived as high....how about to the Giants for Angel Pagan?)

Meanwhile in the AL, Josh Hamilton has reached the top in their triple crown race. He leads in BA and is tied for the lead in home runs and RBI.

Default Bustero!

Buster Posey is third in the NL in batting average at .386. His OBA is a robust .426, but he is not really slugging much, just three of his seventeen hits have been for extra bases.

His pace projects him to have an excellent Ichiro! style season... .386, 23 doubles, 12 homeruns, 46 RBI. Missing are the stolen bases, but so are the caught stealings.

Albert Pujols is on a pace to hit zero HR, 43 RBI, BA ,240.
Matt Carpenter, the replacement for Albert's injured replacement is on a pace to hit 11 HR, 118 RBI, .262, and be paid 02% of Albert's salary.

Yesterday Kemp regained the lead in all three categories and Hamilton may do the same before long.

Having had no triple crown winners in the last 44 seasons, I would imagine the odds are heavily against having two in 2012. Of course the last two times it has been accomplished, it was in back to back years, '66 (Frank Robinson) and '67 (Yaz).

The last of the triple crown winners took place when there were ten teams in each league. The number of competitors has expanded by 33% since then, so winning it now is even tougher.

And Yaz's TC was somewhat tainted, as he shared the HR title with Killebrew.

I would not bet on ever seeing another TC winner, but for a while I thought Pujols had a good shot at it.
