3) Last 5 Padres players with 100 RBI: Chase Headley 2012 (115)

For the first three full seasons of Chase Headley's MLB career, he was nothing more than an average or slightly above average hitter. His 105 OPS+ from 2009-2011 wasn't bad at all, but didn't suggest he'd randomly have the year he had in 2012.

He slashed .286/.376/.498 with 31 home runs and 115 RBI. Yes, 115. He combined to drive in 102 in the 274 games he played in the two seasons prior, but randomly drove in 115 in what was a career year of 2012.

Headley finished fifth in the NL MVP balloting and took home his first and only Silver Slugger award. Headley had an .875 OPS overall that season but raised that number to .908 with runners in scoring position. He wound up leading the National League in runs batted in for the 2012 season while ranking third in the majors.

Unfortunately, Headley would only drive in 50 in 141 games played in 2013 and was never close to the same player he was in that breakout year, but we'll always have 2012 to remember. It wasn't a good year for the Padres team, but Headley's year was one for fans to remember in terms of just an individual player having a ton of success.
