Thank you, Baseball Reference. Below is a graph of the total number of players on each team with ten or more runs batted in. The Phillies have four such players: Ryan Howard (13), Placido Polanco, Chase Utley, and Shane Victorino (each with 11). No other team in the National League has more than one player with double-digit rib-eyes.
In case you’re wondering which players have the double-digit RBI totals, they are: ARI (C. Young), LAD (Kemp), FLA (Cantu), ATL (Heyward), MIL (Braun), STL (Pujols).
Only five of 14 American League teams have a player with double-digit RBI’s and none has more than one player. They are: TBR (Pena), TOR (Wells), BOS (Pedroia), CHW (Quentin), TEX (Cruz).
Just when you thought this offense couldn’t possibly look any better.
