A few stats and trends to keep track of:

Melky Cabrera is 1 for 27 in his last seven games and hasn’t had an RBI since Sept. 5.

Wilson Betemit is 5 for 33 (.152) with 11 strikeouts since Aug. 22. Doug Mientkiewicz could earn himself a lot of October playing time if he heats up over the next 12 games.

The Yankees are 12-1 in games Joba Chamberlain has pitched.

Finally, here are three charts that put what kind of season A-Rod is having in some perspective:

1. Joe DiMaggio 155 (1948)

3. Roger Maris 142 (1961)

Most runs scored for a Yankee since 1940

2. Tommy Henrich 138 (1948)
3. Alex Rodriguez 134 (2007)
3. Derek Jeter 134 (1999)
