After Sunday's games, Alex Rodriguez is sixth in the American League with a .354 average (minimum 40 at-bats).
But he's moved into first place on the Yankee Run Factor list, thanks to a six-RBI Saturday (including a grand slam.) Curtis Granderson, sixth in the YRF/G with a 1.056, made the biggest jump by increasing .413 runs produced per game. A three-homer, six-RBI week will do that to a fella.
Here is this week's report (with explanations below the chart):
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.
