To say his RBI totals are a 'fluke' is to ignore the fact that he 1) plays half his games in Arlington, 2) usually hits cleanup behind some above average OBP'ers and finally 3) to ignore the fact that some hitters simply hit better with runners in scoring position.
It's still important to remember that Josh has just completed his 2nd full year in the league after a 3 year absence.
They are a fluke. He's hit .350 since September 6th in 50 AB's including a 3/4 and 4/5 night yet he has zero RBI's.
You're making a judgment ("it's a fluke") on a 46 AB span sampling size? Especially when he projects to finish the season around 625 ABs? Hmmm.
Again, to say his RBI totals for this year (standing at 124) are a fluke is simply incorrect.
