Paul Goldschmidt on pace to replicate or surpass 2013 exploits
He led the league in home runs (36), runs batted in (135), slugging percentage (.551), total bases (332) and on-base-plus slugging percentage (.952). Duplicating that didn't seem possible.
But 71 games into the 2014 season, Goldschmidt is on pace do just that.
When comparing the first 71 games of his 2013 season, Goldschmidt could well even surpass some of his numbers from last year.
Goldschmidt is on pace to finish 2014 with 196 hits with 116 RBI, 34 home runs and 62 doubles.
He has homered in back-to-back games and currently leads National League first basemen in All-Star voting.
