Comments on: 100+ RBI last six seasons http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/800 This and that about baseball stats.

If the Yankees had actually done something in the playoffs in these last 3 seasons, it would easily go down as one of the most lopsided trades of all time.

And what did they get for Abreu? Squat: Matt Smith (pitched 12 innings in 23 games over 2006 and 2007, then in 2008 they sent him to the Rookie League and then A ball; he turns 30 next year), C.J. Henry (released by the Phillies in 2007, and signed again with the YANKEES!!!), Carlos Monastrios (who still hasn't played in the minors as far as I can tell), and Jesus Sanchez (a catcher who hit .186 for the A-ball Lakewood BlueClaws this year).

Among players qualifying for the batting title Abreu is fourth in p/pa this season. Swisher, Cust, and Dunn are ahead of him. Giambi is a hair behind him.

Abreu has to rank pretty high on the list, and making the opposing pitchers work, while not the most valuable of offensive contributions, has SOME value to your team.

But it helps when you're batting behind Johnny Damon and Derek Jeter and have A-Rod behind you for protection. It also helps the Yankees bottom of the order guys are probably paid more combined than some entire starting lineups.
