lowest BA ever with 100 RBIs

Postby Iconoclastic » Fri Aug 04, 2006 7:31 pm

I noticed today that Richie Sexson has 72 RBIs (on pace for over 100) despite a ridiculous .223 BA. Who holds the record (I have no idea so I'm asking) for lowest BA ever with 100 RBIs?
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Only two appearances by Joe Carter, I'm somewhat surprised.

I figured Dave Kingman would have at least made the list. Surprisingly, Kong only twice surpassed 100 RBI in a season.

Tony Armas has been on the league since 1983? No wonder that guy is always on the DL. :-B

Wanna see some crazy stats? Look at what Jeff Francoeur is on line to do this year: http://www.braves.net/bravesjournal/?p=2557

This thread could also ask the question, "what players did managers choose to hit in the middle of a potent lineup when they didn't belong there". :) You put Tony Womack clean-up for the 2004 Red Sox and I'd bet he'd make a run at 100...he probably sucks badly enough to miss but I'd bet he could make a run at it.

Of course, managers only put crappy power-hitters in the cleanup slot so that would never happen with Womack. That list Tavish posted are some shining examples of contact futility in the heart of the order though. ;-D
