Default Stats Geek Alert: The Ultimate Misnomer:

Mookie Betts set a record today with eight 'lead-off RBIs'.

Obviously, we know what this means - just as we knew what most home runs by a catcher, etc. meant.

...but, 'lead-off RBIs' as a label, seems so ridiculous.

At the very least, strike it up as today's most seemingly impossible stat.

By 'Ulitmate Misomer', I refer to a statistic that, on it's face (or label) is literally impossible to achieve.

Watch's your favorite similar 'record label'?

So...what is a lead-off RBI? How would that be anything other than a result of lead-off home runs?
