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 below as YRF/G.

The second equation is R + RBI - HR / PA = Runs produced per plate appearance, as indicated in the chart below as YRF/PA.

In this week's report, Mark Teixeira sits atop the Yankee Run Factor list. (Note: We update the YRF every Monday.)
