I highly doubt he'll get THAT many, but I guess if he goes on a tear its possible. I think around 23-26 is much more realistic.
Right now, he is the clear ROTY in th NL and has been for some time.
I am not sure how many ABs a rookie needs to qualify but he doesn't meet the requirements for rookies, though I suspect that there's something wrong with ESPN's stats because only Tulo and Chris Young qualify for the NL award as of now.
When looking at the unqualified rookies with 100 ABs, I'll take the guy who has the 3rd most ABs of NL rookies. He also leads all NL rookies in RBI, has by far the best AVG of any rook with 100 ABs (only Reynolds is even within .070), leads NL in both 2B and 3b, and has 5 SBs. His 7 HR is 3rd in the NL. His slugging % is .949, leading all rooks with 100 AB by at least .122. His name is Hunter Pence.
Ryan Braun, who has 93 AB on the season, has better AVG/OPS. It is obviously too small a sample size to be considered but if he can continue on the current pace, he would be in the running.
