Early Predictions for Who Will Lead MLB in Every Major Stat Category in 2013

It might seem to be a bit late in the season to be making "early" predictions, but there is still a whole lot of baseball yet to be played.

Mike Trout finished the 2012 season with more stolen bases than anyone, but at this point in the season he had only swiped nine of his 49 bags.

On June 5 of last year, Buster Posey was batting just .295—a full 70 points behind teammate Melky Cabrera—but he went on to lead the league with a .336 average thanks to hitting at a .385 clip after the All-Star break and a lengthy suspension for Cabrera.

Miguel Cabrera had 13 home runs and 44 RBI. A good start to the season, but nothing compared to Josh Hamilton's 21 homers and 57 ribbies. Cabrera rode 26 home runs after the All-Star break to the first triple crown in 45 seasons.

You just never know who is going to get hot or who is going to cool off.

But let's make some educated guesses, shall we?
