Let's say runners are in scoring position and the count is 3 balls and 2 strikes.
Don't think about ARod's press coverage. Think about getting a hit.
When the run scores, the team scores a run, and you get something called a "run batted in," commonly referred to as an "RBI" for short.
RBIs are good things.
RBIs are things that we like.
RBIs help the team and also help your personal statistics.
It's a win-win:
"When Rodriguez returns, Girardi doesn’t believe he will cause too
much of a distraction, but remember Girardi’s glass is always half-full.
'I thought our guys handled it pretty well.' Girardi said of
Rodriguez’s return from injury in 2013, when he continued to play while
appealing his MLB suspension. 'Will there be a number of new guys in
there? We will do everything we can so it’s not a distraction, but until
we get into it we won’t really know. My personal opinion is that it
won’t be one.'
The smart money differs."
Don't blame ARod for this mess. He wasn't even on the team.
