8. 191 RBI in a Season
Team/Player: Hack Wilson
It feels just plain mean to beat up on the Cubs and downplay one of their players' accomplishments. Haven't they suffered enough? In the case of Hack Wilson's single-season RBI record, though, we have to say something. Yes, 191 RBI in 154 games is remarkable. However, not only was Wilson facing less-than-stellar pitching in 1930, but a design change in the ball used by the National League further juiced his statistics. Nobody has come close to this record in recent years; the only one even within striking distance was Manny Ramirez in 1999, who drove in 165.
