In 33 games against everybody else, he is 24 of 126 (.190) with three extra-base hits and five RBIs.

In other weirdness related to small sample size, Mark Teixeira is 0 for 17 against the Red Sox this season with seven strikeouts.

Then there’s this: Adrian Gonzalez leads the American League with 31 RBIs. The guy behind him? Adrian Beltre with 29.
