NL Paces

I know I'm a day or two late, but a couple games don't have too much impact on paces so long as nobody goes off for a Josh Hamilton-esque performance (circa May, 2012).  To see AL paces, scroll down or click here.

-Adam LaRoche, who's been a mainstay in the heart of Washington's lineup all season long, is in line for 35 homers, 108 RBI, 297 total bases, and 150 strikeouts.
-Gio Gonzalez is quietly establishing himself as a top notch pitcher with the Nats; he's on pace to win 20 games, strike out 221 batters and allow just nine home runs.
-Even in a "down" season for Brian McCann, he's still on pace to swat 27 homers and knock in 86 runs.
-Dan Uggla's disappointing season still has him on pace for 92 runs and 99 walks.
-2011 NL Rookie of the Year Craig Kimbrel is on pace to fan 110 batters while walking just 17 in 63 innings of action.  He's also in line for 47 saves.
-Daniel Murphy is on pace for 50 doubles
-Ike Davis is not having a good season (.214/.278/.431), but is still on pace for 30 dingers and 92 RBI.
-R.A. Dickey hasn't been the same pitcher since the All-Star Break, but is still in line to go 21-5 with 234 strikeouts in 230 innings
-Mark Buehrle is on pace to complete 212 innings, which would mark his twelfth straight season with at least 200 innings pitched.
-Michael Bourn is on pace for 110 runs, 198 hits, 12 triples, 12 home runs, 44 steals, 287 total bases and 164 strikeouts.  Odd to see a leadoff hitter whiff so much, especially when he lacks power, but tons of K's are nothing new to the Braves speedster who could pile up 700 at-bats this season.
-The notoriously punchless Juan Pierre, who's playing everyday, is on pace for 18 extra base hits.
-Cliff Lee is on pace to win all of four games
-In his Phillies debut, Jonathan Papelbon is on pace to finish 63 games.
-Ryan Ludwick is on pace to smash 30 home runs but cross home plat just 48 times.
-Johnny Cueto is on pace to win 21 games, complete 230 innings and rack up 6.9 bWAR
-MVP candidate Andrew McCutchen is on pace for nine bWAR, 113 runs, 219 hits, 35 home runs, 104 RBI, 21 steals and 371 total bases.
-Pedro Alvarez is on pace for 32 home runs but has yet to go deep in August
-Joel Hanrahan is on pace to save 48 games
-A.J. Burnett is enjoying his time in the National League, as he's become a Cy Young candidate and is on pace for 21 wins.
-Erik Bedard is on pace to lose 18 games.
-Yadier Molina, who averaged half a dozen longballs from 2004-'10, is on pace to jack two dozen out of the park this year
-Carlos Beltran is on pace for 98 runs, 39 long balls, 117 RBI, 15 steals and 315 total bases
-Lance Lynn is on track for 20 wins and 200 K's.
-Aramis Ramirez is on pace for 56 doubles, 300 total bases, 81 extra-base hits and 105 RBI.  Not quite Prince Fielder numbers, but respectable in their own right.
-Reigning NL MVP (nope, still not over it) Ryan Braun is at it again in 2012, on pace for 110 runs, 44 taters, 111 RBI, 29 thefts and 344 total bases.
-Alfonso Soriano doesn't have the same legs that once made him the fourth 40/40 player of all time, but he can still pop one out every now and then.  He's on pace to slug 29 home runs and drive in 96 runs
-Give credit to Jose Altuve, currently on pace to score 92 runs despite not having any quality bats capable of driving him in
-Melky Cabrera is on pace for 112 runs, 228 hits, 35 doubles, 15 triples, 17 home runs, 84 RBI, 18 steals, and 342 total bases.  Quite a stat line, no?
-Buster Posey has officially become the best hitting backstop in the major leagues.  Not only is the 2010 NL Rookie of the Year sporting a robust .328/.394/.542 batting line, but he's also on pace for 177 hits, 27 big flies, 110 RBI and 293 total bases.
-Tim Lincecum is on pace for fewer than ten wins and 200 innings pitched, benchmarks he hasn't missed since his rookie season in 2007, but he's still in line for 209 strikeouts.  He's also in danger of reaching 20 wild pitches.
-Despite missing approximately two full months of action, Matt Kemp is still on target for 30 home runs (but only six steals) if he can stay healthy the rest of the way.
-Matt Cain is eyeing a personal best 213 strikeouts (previous career high 186)
-Andre Ethier is on pace for 100 RBI and 45 doubles, but only 17 home runs, in his contract year
-Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen is on pace for 116 punchout in 75 innings pitched.
-Justin Upton, for all his struggles, is still on pace to score 110 runs
-Teammate Jason Kubel is on pace for some big time power numbers in his D-Backs debut with 35 home runs, 110 RBI, and 303 total bases
-Paul Goldschmidt is on pace for 50 doubles
-Chase Headley, always so underrated, is on pace for 93 RBI and 93 walks
-Edinson Volquez is on pace to issue 120 free passes
-Carlos Gonzalez is repeating his monster 2010 season with paces for 110 runs, 194 hits, 38 doubles, 30 home runs, 111 RBI,  21 steals and 336 total bases
-Dexter Fowler is on target for 17 doubles, 17 triples and 18 home runs as he tries to become the first player since Curtis Granderson to get at least 20 two-baggers, three-baggers and four-baggers.
-Wilin Rosario is looking like the NL J.P. Arencibia with his woeful .280 OBP but 27 home run pace
