Curtis Granderson and Triples

Baseball Prospectus, in their matchups column, talks about Curtis Granderson and where his 15 triples matches up historically.  Out of the sixteen players (including Granderson) who have hit 11 more triples in their first 81 games since 1962, none of them were able to match their first half totals in the second half and most of them didn’t even come close.  So there’s probably a better chance that Granderson doesn’t even finish with 20 then there is of him coming close to 30.  Not to diminish his accomplishment out of those 16 players, nobody had more triples then Granderson did in the team’s first 81 games.  Rod Carew was second with 14 and he hit two in the second half to finish with 16.
