These are Carlos Beltran‘s career postseason stats, through game 2 of this NLCS:

G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS TB GDP HBP SH SF IBB
30 137 111 38 42 9 0 14 25 9 0 24 15 .378 .489 .838 1.327 93 1 1 0 1 1

You’ve seen those numbers before. But let’s have a little fun and project them out to 150 games, roughly a full year for an every-day player:

G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS TB GDP HBP SH SF IBB
150 685 555 190 210 45 0 70 125 45 0 120 75 .378 .489 .838 1.327 465 5 5 0 5 5

As a season line, that would set a few MLB records

  • 190 Runs (modern record)
  • 465 Total Bases
  • 45 Stolen Bases without being caught

Projected to 162 games:

G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS TB GDP HBP SH SF IBB
162 740 599 205 227 49 0 76 135 49 0 130 81 .378 .489 .838 1.327 502 5 5 0 5 5

You may have recognized a couple more records in that line:

  • 76 HRs
  • 125 Extra-Base Hits

Alas, it takes a rare combination of skill and good fortune to get into 150+ postseason games. But Beltran has made the most of his scattered opportunities. I hope we get to see him in a World Series before his time runs out.
