LAD May RBI Leaderboard – Bellinger makes a dent

Oh so close. Bellinger ends the month of May with twenty-seven RBI but falls one RBI short of Eric Karros and Nomar Garciaparra who both drove in twenty-eight.

Puig is here to remind us that he used to be great, and used to drive in runs.

I kind of expect Tommy Davis or Steve Garvey to be the leaders in these monthly RBI leaderboards because they were the kings of the RBI during their LAD heydays.

Nice to see Wes Parker here. Wes Parker was also a 1st baseman who could play the outfield. In fact if you were around in the early 60’s you got to see both Ron Fairly and Wes Parker play both 1st base and the outfield on a regular basis. I never did. I only got to see Parker play 1st base and he was as good a fielding 1st baseman as I’ve ever seen.
