It must be tough for Paul Goldschmidt to stay humble with the year he’s having.
Then again, he’s Paul Goldschmidt.
“You’re not going to find bruises on Paul’s chest from him beating it,” Texas State head coach Ty Harrington said of his former slugging first baseman. “Paul is just going to be a guy who gets the job done and won’t talk much about it.”
Truth be told, Goldschmidt lets his numbers speak for themselves.
Through 82 games in his third season with the Arizona Diamondbacks, who selected him with the 246th pick of the 2009 MLB Draft, Goldschmidt is making it look easy. Goldschmidt is batting .302 with 20 home runs (which matched his total from all of last year) and a National League-leading 69 runs batted in.
