While attending game #2 of the world series, the scoreboard showed the starting lineups. I counted the number of 300+ hitters in the lineup for Detroit. That number dwarfed what the Giants had to offer. That number was 5.


and as I JUST POINTED OUT one of those players had 52 ML at bats total. Another of those players was Miguel Cabrera who certainly couldn't benefit from RBI situations created when he himself was standing on 1st base.

That leaves 3 players, one of whom hit behind Cabrera all year.

Your claim was that Cabrera's RBI total benefited greatly from 'all the .300 hitters in the Tiger lineup' (paraphrasing). And again, your assertion was wrong.

Since I couldn't peg any team at greater than 30% to make the Series next year right now, it is pointless to pick.

Hold my feet to a flame and I go with Texas.
