NL Triple Crown Race: Handicapping Gonzalez, Votto, and Pujols

Winning a Triple Crown is one of the rarest feats in all of baseball. Very rarely do we even see one player contending for the average, home run, and RBI titles.

And you're telling me that there are three contenders in the National League this year?

Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez, Cincinnati's Joey Votto, and St. Louis's Albert Pujols are all in the hunt for the Triple Crown. And if none of them wins the honor, it will be one of them that keeps another from winning.

All season long, these three have been hitting absurdly for average and power.

Carlos Gonzalez Is Having The Best Season No One is Talking About

 

In the mile-high city, there is an outfielder having the best baseball season you haven't heard about. 

His name is Carlos Gonzalez, and he has been a menace to National League pitching this season.

Carlos Gonzalez, 24, is a tall, lean lefty with a sweet swing. 

Originally from Venezuela, Gonzalez is in his second full year with the Colorado Rockies.  He came to the Rockies in the Winter of 2008 when the Rockies dealt Matt Holliday to the Oakland A's. 

Precious CarGo: Is Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez's Amazing Season for Real?

Carlos Gonzalez is making Rockies' fans forget all about Matt Holliday.

Ever since breaking out in last year's playoffs, Gonzalez has been on an absolute tear.

The young outfielder is in the top ten in all National League offensive categories, and is second in Power-Speed, a statistic invented by Bill James that measures the harmonic mean between a player's home runs and stolen bases.

And at the ripe age of 24, he's one of baseball's budding young stars.

But forgive me if I'm skeptical of his amazing stats.

All Star 2010:Ubaldo Jimenez Leads What Should Be Three Colorado Rockies

Ubaldo Jimenez is without a doubt the best pitcher in all of Major League Baseball this season.

His 15-1 record is easily the top mark in the majors, while his 2.20 ERA is fifth best among pitchers with 10+ decisions.

His three complete games include a no-hitter versus the Atlanta Braves, which is the first ever in the Colorado Rockies’ 18-year franchise history.

Is Carlos Gonzalez the Next Matt Kemp?

There were high expectations for Carlos Gonzalez entering the 2010 season, and thus far he has lived up to them. Just look at his numbers through Tuesday if you need proof:
