Allen Craig And Nick Stavinoha

At Viva El Birdos's ever-active comments section ghostrider520 points out a striking similarity between internet favorite Allen Craig and dugout favorite Nick Stavinoha: Their RBI numbers.

Craigerator has more RBI (8) than Stavinoha (7)
in about half as many at bats.

Down the line it's pointed out that Craig has 15 at-bats with runners in scoring position to Stavinoha's 41

I don't dislike Nick Stavinoha, and I think on a team without Allen Craig, Joe Mather, Jon Jay et al all breathing down the outfield's neck for playing time he could be a useful pinch hitter/fifth outfielder/third catcher. But Allen Craig, whose line at Memphis climbed all the way to .322/.389/.558 with 76 RBI in 77 games before he was recalled, is better enough than Stavinoha to provide some truly impressive junk stats to that effect.
