Since it is brought up fairly frequently....it appears as if Phillips has some pretty decent company on this list.

V. Guerrero 41

I'd be interested to see how many times these guys came up with runners in double play position.

It would sort of be a reverse RBI %.

Not sure what it would prove but I'd be curious all the same.

Yes, GIDP is a team-dependent stat.

Last year, "Sir Albert" and Carlos Lee topped the list with 27, while Brandon came in a close second with 26. This year, he only has 12 to date.

If you add Albert and Lee's totals this year, they would be at 34 and 35 respectively.

I feel like, and I could be wrong, but I do think to a small degree, it matters who is on base when you GIDP. If the runner is fast, how they are as a baserunner (trying to take out the 2B/SS and unrelated to that, what if the hit and run is on? It just seems like there are a lot of factors.

I hate to say it, but Phillips looks like the outlier on that list....

It's like "which guy doesn't fit with the others?"

Having Griffey, Jr. hit ahead of him so many times can't help.

In MLB it aint easy to hit the ball or control where the ball goes when you do hit it.

Folks scoff at the idea of randomness or luck in baseball but it's there, just as sure as any old school belief, it's there.

Of course there's some luck involved, but some players are more prone to hitting into double plays. Brandon Phillips is one of them, but he more than makes up for it in the other aspects of his game.

Bat on the ball and RH, a sure sign to compile DP points.
