another game, another career high. tonight, on August 8, in the top of the 6th inning in the game against the New York Yankees, Michael hit a leadoff double down the left field line off former Cleveland Indian David Huff after an 0-1 count. (he would later score on David Murphy's 1-out single to left-center field.) this double gave Michael 223 total bases, a new career high. his old career high in this category came in 2012, when he had 222 total bases for the year.
with 46 games to go, it's obvious that Michael will continue to add to this new career high several times before the season is over. right now i think it's very realistic to assume that he finishes with at least 250 TB, and possibly as many as 275. we shall see.
so congrats, Michael! you are literally knocking stats outta the park this year with all your career highs. and although you may not care about individual statistics at the moment, especially since the Indians have lost these last 2 games that you set personal records in, i for one am loving this. thank you! ;D
