• A-Rod & Abreu: Thunder & Lightning

    Posted by on February 27th, 2008 · Comments (1)

    Copies of “The Hardball Times Season Preview 2008” and “The Bill James Gold Mine 2008” arrived at WasWatching.com HQ today. Sweet.

    Reviews on both are to follow soon. In the interim, here’s a fun Yankees fact from The Bill James Gold Mine 2008:

    101 of Alex Rodriguez’ 156 RBI in 2007 came from his homeruns. Bobby Abreu had more RBI singles, more RBI doubles, more RBI triples and more miscellaneous RBI from things like walks and groundouts than did A-Rod.

    A-Rod, last year, drove in Abreu 33 times, Jeter 32 times, and himself 54 times. That’s 119 of his 156 RBI (in 2007) right there.

      Thus, the reason why the Yankees preach OBP.
