I'm really surprised to see Kent, a second baseman, in with this kind of company and now I am convinced he'll be in the HOF.

Most career games with 5+ RBI but no home runs: 6, Pinky Higgins; 5, Enos Slaughter; 4, by eight players — Jim Rice, Joe Judge, Charlie Gehringer, Lou Gehrig, Joe Cronin, Orlando Cepeda, and Johnny Berardino.

Johnny Berardino??!!

Not sure why it was edited to remove the table - but, I restored what was there.

Looking at that box score I was surprised to see that Gehrig batted 5th while Lazzerl batted 4th. It turns out for that season the two of them alternated in those two batting positions. I always thought Gehrig had a lock on 4th.

Cheese, another one of Gehrig's 5+ RBI-games, but when you start getting 8+ RBI games you're in more select company.

I imagine Bonds will get a fair number of "protest" votes their first year. Perhaps enough to keep them under 75%. But I expect they will each be in by the second ballot.
