If baseball were a video game that you could set to the easiest of skill levels, unbelievable statistics would become commonplace.
Seemingly unbreakable single-season records, like Hack Wilson's 191 RBI in 1930 or Nolan Ryan's modern-day record of 383 strikeouts in 1973, would quickly slide down the leaderboards of baseball history.
Looking at the pace that a player is on after the first few games of the season is a lot like a video game: It's tons of fun, but pretty meaningless in the grand scheme of things.
That doesn't mean that we should stop playing video games (though some of us should cut back and get outside more often), and it doesn't mean that we should stop having fun with numbers.
Here's a look at the ridiculous numbers that some players are on pace for in 2013.
