Three hits today brings him up to 1974, which was a very good year. How many of those 26 hits will he get in 2017? Can he get two hits a game for the last 13 games?

I think he will get hit 2000 in the ALDS -- possibly game 2.

Sorry, postseason games don't count.

He'll probably sit at least one of those games, probably more if we go on a hot streak and clinch before the last series. But let's say he plays in 12 games. That's probably about 55 plate appearances. And let's say he draws 5 walks. That means he'd have to go about 26 for 50, which is a .520 batting average.

I am still hoping he gets a hit or two in the second game of the ALDS regardless.

So you're saying there's a chance?

Can we say this kind of B.S.? Those are still games, often against the best competition. I don't think they should count towards regular season records like batting titles etc. but they should count overall. Seems pretty ridiculous not to.

Yeah I have always thought that post season stats not counting for "counting" stats like all time hits, home runs, etc is pretty dumb.

well, he has 10 hits in the post season in his career, so that means he's technically at 1984 total hits.

It seems reasonable to me to keep regular season and post-season stats separate. The whole idea is to keep compare as similar sets of data as possible. While that's obviously impossible for a variety of reasons, the post-season variability from player to player is immense.

I kind of like the HOF debate of "and then let's look at what he did in the post-season." It's the gravy, not the meat.

Which is still a pretty decent year...

I also think it's good to separate regular season from post season stats.Post-season stats are fun to look at by themselves.Can you believe...

  • Mariano Rivera had 42 postseason saves? (and pitched in 96 games!!!)
  • Andy Pettite pitched 276 postseason innings? (and has 19 wins!!!)
  • Derek Jeter played in 158 postseason games? (and has 200 hits!!!)

Twins fans absolutely believe them. If anything, they might seem low. :) Although I guess some of those series were pretty brief...

I just have to say Maker's resurgence has not only been amazing, it's been an absolute treat to watch.

I've always been a fan and supporter, but really thought he was about done and definitely done after 2018. Now I'm starting to wonder if he doesn't maybe have even a couple more years in him.

If he is back to his old self, Mauer seems like a player who could hit well for several more years.

Two more hits last night, needs 23 in 11 games.

I don't know, I personally don't think it's fun to look at those numbers much at all...especially this week, and especially considering against whom they were mostly compiled.

Three hits last night bring him up to 1981. The year that brought us Donkey Kong, Prince Charles and Lady Di's wedding, the IBM PC, the end of the Iranian hostage situation, MTV, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

9 games to go. 19 hits needed. Dicknbertnmarney are saying on tonight's broadcast that he's going to play every game the rest of the way, although if we clinch wild card #2 I would think and hope he will get a game or 2 off. 0 for 1 so far tonight, but this is Detroit's pitching staff we are facing so there's hope for 6 of the next 9 games.

After an 0-fer on Friday night, Joe gets a hit that breaks the pitcher's leg. That brings him to 1982, the year that brought us Epcot, the Commodore 64, the CD, the Falklands War, the start of Ripken's Streak, E.T., best picture for Chariots of Fire, and Thriller.
