What is your opinion and why? Are RBI's a meaningless stat? I am preparing to do a rather thorough blog post as to why they are not and need to make a decent argument as to why they are not. Want to get the board's opinions. I have seen in the past a lot of people here say they do believe they are largely indicative on the runners getting on base for said 'RBI man'; however, if they're so meaningless and random, why are some players better at accumulating this random event?
