High-yield CD.

Since Chris Davis’s big league career began on June 26, these are the American League hitters who have more than his 48 RBI (a total that would extrapolate to 110 RBI over 162 games for the rookie):

Four-time All-Star Miguel Cabrera (74) – making $11.3 million in 2008
Two-time All-Star Justin Morneau (67) – $8.4 million
Aubrey Huff (62) – $8 million
Two-time All-Star Melvin Mora (61) – $7.8 million
One-time All-Star Kevin Youkilis (59) – $3 million
Raul Ibanez (59) – $5.5 million
Twelve-time All-Star Alex Rodriguez (59) – $28 million
Carlos Pena (54) – $6 million
Jhonny Peralta (52) – $2.5 million
Nick Markakis (50) – $455,000
Five-time All-Star Jason Giambi (49) – $23.4 million

Good win for Texas, who pulls back to within two games of .500 and maintains a 4.5-game lead on Oakland for second in the West.  

And a great moment for Davis, who capped off the Rangers’ eighth walkoff victory of 2008 (their most in any season this decade), and who will earn something like $200,000 this year.
