Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira continue their reign on top of the run factor list for yet another week. Granderson and Teixeira remained tied for the team-lead in homers and are in a three-way tie for the AL lead with Blue Jays' Jose Bautista.
It was Nick Swisher who had the best week with two homers, six RBIs and raised his batting average from .221 to .237.

What is the Yankee Run Factor?
The Yankee Run Factor is a fairly simple statistical metric. It takes the "Runs produced" sabermetric created by Bill James and divides it in two different ways.
The first equation is R + RBI - HR / G = Runs produced per game, as indicated in the chart above as YRF/G.
The second equation is R + RBI - HR / PA = Runs produced per plate appearance, as indicated in the chart above as YRF/PA.
