    Posted by on June 30th, 2010 · Comments (5)

    RBI Percentage is 100*(RBI-HR)/Runners On – and thanks to BaseballMusings.com we can look at this stat for the Yankees batters so far this season:

    Player		   Run On    RBI	HR	RBI Pct
    Alex Rodriguez	     217      54	11	19.82
    Fr. Cervelli 	     147      29	0	19.73
    Nick Swisher	     199      47	13	17.09
    Robinson Cano	     227      53	15	16.74
    Derek Jeter	     203      39	8	15.27
    Mark Teixeira	     240      48	13	14.58
    Jorge Posada	     132      28	9	14.39
    Marcus Thames	      66      10	2	12.12
    Brett Gardner	     192      23	3	10.42
    Cur. Granderson	     151      22	7	 9.93

    Great jobs here by A-Rod, ‘Cisco, Swish and Cano.

    Most would like to see better results from Tex…I know that I would.

    And, Granderson? He’s got to do better than that…it’s just too many runners left on base.

      Granderson has been something of a disappointment. I thought he’d be better at the dish.

      He becomes more of a concern every day. It’s the ghost of Ruppert Jones, who scouted this guy.

      Wasn’t much of a concern last Wednesday in the 10th inning. Or in the 9th inning on Sunday night.

      Let me put this another way.

      Right now:

      Curtis Granderson : 2010 as Nick Swisher : 2009

      @ Evan3457:

      Nick Swisher had a good season in 2009, is it your opinion that Granderson is having a good season? Swisher had a solid first half last year, I don’t see anything like that happening with Granderson.
