Crazy Statistical Projections After 2 Games For The Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks have done a great job so far in keeping the fans' excitement going by winning two close games to open the season against the San Francisco Giants. In doing so, there have been a few very good offensive numbers.

Something that is fun to do (for stat geeks) is project stats over an entire season. After two games, you can get some crazy projections. Let's take a look at some.

↵

After two games, Chris Young has four RBI. That projects to 324 RBI over an entire season. After not homering in game two, his HR projection cut in half from 162 to 81. That's a huge drop on production.

↵

Aaron Hill went from have a zero projection to being on pace for 162 HR and 243 RBI.

↵

On the less positive note, Paul Goldschmidt just might be a bit like Mark Reynolds. With three strikeouts on two games, he is right now on pace to surpass Reynolds' records. Goldschmidt thus projects to 243 Ks, which blows by even Reynolds.

↵

Realistic? Not at all. Fun? Certainly a little bit.
