OFF TOPIC--STEVE CARLTON AND THE 1972 PHILLIES--STARTS 33-35

33--Loss to Houston
34--Shutout against Atlanta--complete game
35--Win over St. Louis--complete game

23-8, 24 Complete games, 8 shutouts, 272 Ks in 292 1/3 innings.

Carlton gives up 4 earned runs in the three games.

In the Atlanta game, Henry Aaron gets a single in the first inning to break Stan Musial's all time total bases record of 6,134. 48 years later, Musial is still 2nd on the list. Aaron ended up with 6,856 total bases (singles*1) + (doubles*2) + (triples*3) + (home runs*4). The only other player in MLB history with over 6,000 total bases is Willie Mays with 6,066. Aaron and Musial played 23 seasons, Mays 22. For Aaron it averages to 298 total bases for every season for 23 years. Aaron (1958 when he was 25) and Musial (1948 when he was 27) are the only two players who didn't play in the lively ball era (20s and 30s) or steroid era who ever got over 400 total bases in a single season. The career total bases record is one of Aaron's less well known records but seems pretty impregnable. Trout at age 28, going into this season, has 2,616.
