Ooh, now you're picking a stat nerd/word nerd fight.
I say that "RBI" has become a word in its own right, like "OK" or "ASAP" (for better or worse in those cases). Therefore, if a batter has multiple instances of creating an RBI, then he has multiple RBIs
. If you want to get verbose all up in that, then you could say that he has multiple runs batted in
. But to mix the two, and use the term "RsBI
" is akin to using "irregardless." It's a linguistic mashup that sounds like it should be correct for its lack of melifluousness, but in fact is just plain unwieldy.
