The Anaheim 10

I've been working some very odd hours lately so, luckily I have missed the last two Yankee losses, but unluckily, I don't get to update this blog until late in the afternoon now.

Anyway, I woke up this morning at 4 AM to find out that Garret Anderson had 10 RBIs in the second loss, an 18-9 drubbing. What is it with Anaheim and 10 RBIs? The last player to drive in 10 runs was Alex Rodriguez, on April 26, 2005, against, you guessed it, Anaheim. A-Rod might have been trying to answer Anderson last night, because he, himself, hit his 41st and 42nd home runs.

So one player from each team has had 10 RBIs, the last one being an Angel. Does this mean the next one will be a Yankee? If so, I'm putting my money on either Bobby Abreu or Hideki Matsui. With the slow starts that each of them got off to this season, they now have 86 and 87 RBIs respectively. Who'da thunk it?
