I'm just trying to figure out where all those RBI are going to come from if he's not hitting for average OR power.
Same place those 40 runs have come from this year.
It's no secret that RBIs are a team stat. Same as Runs. He's got Hafner, Martinez, Blake, and Broussard hitting in front of him. Before they were hitting behind him, knocking him in. He's going to get more opportunities with runners on base, and with multiple runners on base, than the average .230-.240 hitter. Plus, he's not likely to stay a .230-.240 hitter.
