It doesn't appear that the 2013 season is going to be one which features any assaults on batting records.

The on a pace leaders are:

Home runs...B.J. Upton....52
Doubles...Manny Machado...66
Triples...Adeiny Hechavarria....18
RBI...Miguel Cabrera...181
Hits...Miguel Cabrera...258

While Cabrera would be compiling near record totals in RBI and hits, when records get broken typically the new record setter is far out in front of the old record pace at this point in the season. If you are not, that means you are trying to catch the record holders from behind in the late season. As hot as Cabrera has been so far, he would have to get even hotter down the stretch.

Chris Carter of the Astros is on a pace for 230 strikeouts which would shatter the sanctified record of Mark Reynolds (223) which goes all the way back to 2009. No one figures to threaten Jimmie Rollins sacred at bats record (716). The on pace leader is Jacob Ellsbury who projects to 673.

There have been 13 different owners of the record for most strikeouts in one season, probably the largest number for any record. It has incrementally risen through 15 different numbers since Sam Wise's 104 in 1894, which held until 1903.

At the other extreme, when Sac Flies became an official category in 1953, Gil Hodges hit 19 to set the standard. That record still stands to this day, and after 60 years Hodges is the only player who ever owned it. Nobody has more than five this year, so the record is not being challenged. But if somebody gets a 6th SF tonight, they could be on a pace to break it.

Alexi Casilla is currently the all-time leader for SB%, now at 89.41%, since his last SB May 14. If he is caught stealing on his next attempt, he will fall back behind Chase Utley as the all-time leader. Utley dropped behind when he was thrown out May 20. Jayson Werth is also in the race.

Since the introduction of the DH, the fewest runs scored in a season by any team was 513 by the 2010 Seattle Mariners.

The Miami Marlins of 2013 are on a pace to score 435 runs.

Matt Williams was on a pace to hit 61* home runs in 1994 when a strike ended the season. He never hit more than 38 in a full season. There have been 12 players since then named Matt Williams in the minor leagues, and two of them made the majors.

Surprisingly, that was a year when nobody was on a pace to set a new doubles record. Chuck Knoblauch had only 45.

(Sorry about including it here, I can't seem to find the 1994 On a Pace thread.)

Caleb Thielbar of the Minnesota Twins (and South Dakota State University) has pitched 19.2 consecutive innings without giving up a run since called up to the majors. He's on a pace to break the rookie record of 38 innings without giving up a run to begin your career. He has already broke the Minnesota Twins rookie record.

He's also on a pace to break the major league record of 60 consecutive innings w/o giving up a run set by Orel Hershiser.

The 38 consecutive innings to start a career without giving up a run was set by Oakland's Brad Ziegler in 2010. Anyone who pitches a single scoreless inning to start his career could be said to be "on a pace" to break that record. Thilebar still has 19 more innings to go to set a new record.

And he is only a third of the way toward matching Hershiser.

Yes, I know these things. The title of the thread is "on a pace" and though he's got a long way to go he definitely qualifies. Part of this thread is the ridiculousness of it.
