I know RBI is a mostly-meaningless stat, but when you have 27 RBI in your first 25 games with the Red Sox, I take notice. That's a 178 RBI pace. Not that Bay is a 178 RBI guy, but this is a key time and he's proving that he can handle the pressure of Boston better than Eric Gagne.
Plus, his OPS is .908. Manny's was .927 with Boston.
This guy's gonna be fine.
