In the history of baseball only 2 players have racked up 100+ rbi prior to the all star game. In 1935 Hank Greenberg had 103 by the July 8th game and in 1998 steroid abuser Juan Gonzalez had 101 by the July 7th game. Well sitting at 74 rbi now, Josh Hamilton has 22 games to reach the 100 rbi total. Here's hoping he joins the club.
Note: The All Star Game is a week later this year, so it wouldn't be as impressive but it'd still be solid.
