    Could it be possible that Alex Rodriguez will have less than 60 RBI this year, playing full-time, batting in the middle of the Yankees line-up?

      It’s possible. Just about anything’s possible.

      But if given an even money bet as to whether A-Rod’s RBI totals at the end of the season is >60 or 60.

      How about you?

      I think it’s amazing that the Yankees have played 50 games this year and A-Rod only had an RBI in 10 of those 50 games.

      It’s possible but I doubt it because part of the issue is the team-wide infection of the disease known as RISPfail. As the team’s luck improves in the RISP category, so too will Rodriguez’s RBI total.

      I don’t know if I would call it amazing, given the varying nature of RBI’s
