Red Sox DH/OF J.D. Martinez is possibly about to enter some rarefied territory. Only five players in MLB history have ever lead both the regular season and the postseason in RBIs. Martinez already has the former locked up, and has a pretty good shot at becoming the sixth player on this hallowed list (he has thirteen postseason RBIs so far in 2018). The list of the other players to achieve this lofty goal is pretty impressive: Jose Canseco (1988); Lou Gehrig (1928); Hank Aaron (1957); Duke Snider (1955); Hank Greenberg (1940). Of course, it remains to be seen if Martinez misses any World Series action going forward due to his injured right ankle. Stay tuned!
