That’s not an insult. That’s just a fact.
In fact Barry Zito matched the RBI total for Alex Rodriguez’s postseasons of 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2012 combined.
But that’s not fair, because A-Rod did have a great 2009.
Let’s write it differently.
Barry Zito matched the combined number of runs batted in hit by Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher, Alex Rodriguez, Russell Martin, Curtis Granderson, Eric Chavez and Robinson Cano in the ALCS.
Jeter as well, but he was hurt and is the captain and just finished turning water into wine.
Maybe the Yankees can try to acquire Zito and bat him 6th.
