J.D. Drew "On Fire" Stat Of The Day

Percentage of Runners on Third Base Batted In (AL, min. 130 PA)
               On 3rd  Driven In    %
J.D. Drew 26 15 57.7
Vlad Guerrero 26 15 57.7
Adam Rosales 16 9 56.3
Vernon Wells 18 10 55.6
Miguel Cabrera 26 14 53.8
Alex Rodriguez 33 17 51.5
Those are the only AL players above 50%.

There are eight players in the NL with a % higher than 57.7, including Orlando Cabrera at 58.3%*. Aaron Rowland leads MLB with a ridiculous 80% (12 of 15 driven in).

Should we call Drew the pied piper of slam-a-win for his ability to drive in RATS?

Perhaps it's best we don't.

Why, hello, Mr. Lobel. ;-)

Actually, I could have sworn I heard Dave O'Brien actually complementing Drew the other afternoon on the radio regarding his "intelligence as a batter" (my words, not his).

Like a mimosa, but with a rodent in it.
