If all 13 players hang on, it will be the most since 2001 when 21 players made it.
With one week to go, ten of the thirteen have triple milestones clinched.
Vladimir Guerrero .325-31-113 Justin Morneau .323-33-126 Manny Ramirez .318-34-101 Jermaine Dye .316-43-119 Paul Konerko .315-35-113 Travis Hafner .308-42-117
Matt Holliday .332-32-107 Albert Pujols .329-46-129 Lance Berkman .318-43-130 Ryan Howard .314-58-143
The other three need to produce in the final week.
Chase Utley .309-31- 98 Needs a couple of RBIs. Vernon Wells .307-32-105 Needs to keep average up. Carlos Lee .301-37-114 Batting average is borderline.
One other is close.
Garrett Atkins .321-27-114 Needs three homers.
Two others are long shots.
Miguel Cabrera .336-25-111 Needs 5 homers. Jim Thome .290-42-107 Short on batting average. Aramis Ramirez .290-37-114 Short on batting average.
Johan Santana was on target for pitchers triple milestones (<3.00 ERA, 20 wins, 200 strikeouts), but had a bad outing last week and needs two wins in the final week to make it.
Johan Santana 2.79-18-240
