We all know that the fourth most important stat in baseball (after wins, triple plays, and balks) is the RBI, the ribbie, the ribeye steak. But did you know that a person's RBI total also conveniently serves as a rough-hewn measure of their intelligence? It's true. Mike Toth said it
, and he's never been wrong before (very high RBI totals). Toth wants the Blue Jays to fire manager John Gibbons and replace him with Gary Carter. Why?Speaking of the Mets, Carter and Gibbons were teammates on the club that captured the 1986 World Series.
But who do you think has the brighter baseball mind?
Carter, an all-star catcher who drove in 105 runs in '86?
Or Gibbons, a back-up catcher with 19 at-bats that season?
Who has the brighter mind?
Bobby Cox (58 career RBI) or Dusty Baker (1013)?
Terry Francona (143) or Carl Everett (792)?
Isiah Thomas (0) or the late Stephen Jay Gould (2,493)?
Mississippi (3.5) or Toad the Wet Sprocket (also 3.5)?
