Despite only being two doubles away from being the seventh player in MLB history with 60 doubles in a single season, Freeman is keeping his focus on the team. After coming up short last season, Freeman is wanting to add another World Series to his resume rather than setting records.
“Trying not to think about it,” Freeman said of the statistical milestones he could reach. “I know we’ve clinched and all you’ve got to talk about now is individual numbers. But if you do that, that’s how you start sliding. You start pressing. You start chasing. You put yourself in bad habits. If I need to move a runner over, I’m going to pull it and try to help this team win. If you play like that, you’ll get rewarded.”Via Orange County Register
The Dodgers are going to need Freeman to keep on driving in runs in order for the team to be successful. On the season he has 98 RBIs and is only two away from his fourth career 100 RBI season.
This season he has been one of the most productive batters in the league. He has the fourth highest OPS in the NL and third highest average amongst qualified batters.
Although he is nearing all these impressive accomplishments, Freeman has not been worried about his individual stats all season. Watching his at-bats, Freeman does whatever he can to get the ball in play and it just so happens that he is really good at that.
Although he is not thinking about, Freeman still has a good shot of making some history heading into the last series of the regular season.
