BUT, this guy was on a team with over one half of his starting team batting at 300 or better.

This is wrong. I know why you think this, you are giving Garcia and his 52 at bats credit. Obviously though, a guy with 52 at bats wouldn't present Cabrera with many more opportunities for RBI at .300 than at .270 - and in fact in this case zero more opportunities since Garcia always hit in the back half. Other than Cabrera, two other qualifiers hit .300: Jackson and Prince (who also hit behind Cabrera). Additionally, Dirks hit .300 in 300 AB - hitting 2nd about a third of the time.

Meanwhile guys like Kelly (113 AB, .187), Rayburn (205 AB, .171), and Santiago (228 AB, .206) were also getting regular AB - more combined than Dirks and Garcia.
