Triple Crown?

Postby Kingctb27 » Thu Mar 17, 2005 3:10 pm

Do you guys think that anyone has a legitimate shot at the Triple Crown?

A few names who could do it in the AL are Beltre, Vlad, Manny. Would be very hard with Ichiro hitting .370 though.

A few guys in the NL would be Pujols, Bonds, Helton.......

I really don't see it happening this year, but who knows......

I can see Pujols or Vlad doing it. The others won't have a good enough BA.

I dunno about that....If Beltre can somehow get better than he did last year, it's very possible for him to win it. He hit .334 last year if I'm not mistaken. Hitting .345 isn't out of the question if you ask me....

It would take a lot of things to go his way but helton could do it on the planet that is Coors. Could easily lead the league in batting average, it's just up to the rest of his team to get on base in front of him.

I see Pujols having the best odds. Manny would be next in line IMO. I doubt either will though.

Out of that list i'd say the only that have a shot would be pujols and vladdy, but both would have problems getting the top BA

I don't think anyone has a legitimate shot (until teams start pitching to Bonds again), but there is always the outside chance. I would say Manny and Pujols.

Sheffield.


Ichiro isn't hitting .370 again, by the way...

pujols would be my main choice....a AL player will have a tougher time due to ichiro, but pujols will not have a easy time either with bonds only getting 200+ walks.......
