Knockin on the Door of an MLB HR Record

Unread postby aclayman » Sun Sep 22, 2013 11:50 pm

To be filed in the mostly overlooked quirky stats category...
The Indians will have no one hit 25 homers, drive in 90 runs, score 90 runs, or hit .300 this year.
BUT, they may match the all-time MLB record for "Most Players Hitting 10 or More Homeruns on the Same Team in One Season." Basically, Mike Aviles, Michael Brantley, and Drew Stubbs would each need to homer once this week to get it done. If Jason Giambi somehow adds 2 of his own before the season ends, we'd break the record of 11 players set by the '04 Tigers.

1 Swish: 20
2 Santana: 19
3 Kip: 17
4 Raburn: 16
5 Reynolds: 15 (as an Indian)
6 Droobs: 14
7 Chiz: 11
8 Gomes: 10
9 Brantley: 9
10 Stubbs: 9
11 Aviles: 9
12 Giambi: 8

Michael Bourn (6) is the only regular contributor without a realistic shot at double digits on the entire team.
By comparison, none of the Tribe teams of the "Era of Champions" ever had more than 8 guys with 10+ homers-- for whatever worth that may or may not have.
