    Bryce Harper only has 38 RBIs...

    And 17 homers! How wild would it be to see him hit 25 homers and not even crack 50 RBIs?

    Meh, Harper is so last year.

    j/k

    Nationals' O is pretty weak this year.

    Harper only has only 266 at bats because he was hurt.
    So based on a complete 600 at bat season, he'd be averaging around 85 rbi. That's not that unusual for a player who bats lead off sometimes, like tonight, on a team with a dismal offense.
    Kirk Gibson won the NL MVP in 1988 with 25 homers and 76 rbi.

    He has only started batting lead off like the past week though right? I don't keep up with the Nats but check box score on occasion

    On top of him being injured for quite a few games, he also hits at the top of the order in the #1 or #2 slot...very hard to drive runs in, in that spot in the NL

    Wouldnt be wild at all. Like it has been mentioned, he has missed a bunch of games on the DL, hitting near the top of the order on a lackluster offense doesn't help.

    Still not bad for a 20 year old.

    Jeez, guys, put a ring on it already.

    A reasonable ratio of RBI:HR is 2.5 for a power hitter, so he's a little below that, but it's also highly impacted by a player's particular situation. His Baserunner Scored is 13% this year, actually higher than last year's 12% (the MLB average is 14%). Hard to knock them in when they're in the dugout.

    Matt Carpenter and his 55rbi's from the lead off spot might disagree with this. 😄

    On top of the Cardinals having one of the best offenses in the game, Carpenter has also played every day. I'm sure you can see this.

    Yea you guys are right cause everyone knows Pete Kozma (8th place hitter) and the Cards pitching slot (9 hole) get on base a lot.
