Michael Brantley‘s 20/20 Season

During the series sweep by Detroit, Michael Brantley stole his 21st base and whacked his 19th homer of the year, both already career highs.  If Brantley can hit one more home run over the remaining two weeks in the season, he’ll become the first Cleveland Indian to go 20/20 since Shin-Soo Choo back in 2010 (he also did it the year before in 2009).  It’s a difficult feat to accomplish, considering the necessity for both power and speed.  It’s just another way to prove how valuable Brantley has been to the Tribe this year.

Also worth noting is the possibility of him reaching 100 RBI.
