Here’s a list of all the current major league regulars with the fewest runs batted in per plate appearance this year:
And a similar list using runs scored, rather than RBI.
And Ordonez has been that impotent despite hitting third in a very respectable lineup. Brendan Ryan is batting ninth for the Mariners and hitting .177 this season, yet he’s still managed six runs scored and seven RBI in 94 plate appearances. Ordonez is averaging a run scored and an RBI every 10 games!
I’m not saying Ordonez is done, and I’m not saying that his poor run and RBI numbers mean much of anything going forward.
I’m just saying he’s been really, really, really lousy so far.
