three brewers got 200 plus hits each in 1982. molitor, yount and cooper. and still ted simmons could only drive in 97 runs
anyway, that team scored 892 runs. in a tough ballpark. in a semi-pitchers era. one of you fancypants whizkids put that brewers offense in like 1998 or some other of the high octane years and let me know how many runs it scores
The 1991 Rangers also had three (Palmeiro, Franco, Sierra) and led their league in runs scored. I'm guessing it's a rare feat; no Yankee trio ever did it.
Yount in 1982 had 129 R and 114 RBI. ARod in 1996 had 141 R and 123 RBI; scale that from 146 to 156 games and the R/RBI would become 151/131. I think that's a much more reasonable range than the 182/160 in post #4. It isn't too far from the 155/137 in post #7, and if you transplant Molitor to bat in front of ARod those RBIs go up a little.
Yadier Molina is a great player, but he ain't gonna get 200 hits.
He then played 142 games, 598 PA's, and 151 games, 619 PA's, and is on pace for about 145 games this season. He's also playing defense, not DH. Not fragile.
