HR:RBI ratio

Postby ramble2 » Tue Apr 26, 2005 2:24 am

What kind of Home Run:RBI ratios do you have on your fantasy teams and are you seeing in your league?

My HR:RBI ratio is very low. I'm leading my league in HR, but guys with half my HR total have roughly the same RBI as my team.

Here's what they are in my league:

HR:RBI / ratio
29:112 / 1:3.8
34:98 / 1:2.9
23:94 / 1:4.1
19:97 / 1:5.1
22:98 / 1:4.5
19:82 / 1:4.3
19:77 / 1:4.1
23:108 / 1:4.7
28:110 / 1:3.9
16:92 / 1:5.8
20:95 / 1:4.8
21:77 / 1:3.7

A low HR total can give a misleadingly high HR:RBI ratio, but mine still jumps out in the league (I'm at 1:2.9). It's not like I have Dunn on my team (he's gotta have around a 1:1.2 HR:RBI ratio ;-7 ). Hopefully my guys will keep hitting the long ball, and more people will get on base for 'em.

This isn't anything I'm worried about, as I figure that by the end of the season these ratios will probably end up clustering far tighter. If anything, I see it as a good sign that my team should be able to put up more production than I'm currently seeing, whereas other teams are probably at an unsustainable level.

So far a couple of my teams might as well be all Dunn... in 2 of my 12 team leagues I have 10-11 points in HR's but 3-4 in RBI's
one league I am in I have 20 HR's w/ 72 RBI's while another manager has the same amount of HR's but has 97 RBI's.. absolutley killing me right now, but should even out over the course of the season

I'm tops in the league in K's and WHIP but last in Wins and ERA. Go figure.

Well, I'm getting about 1:5.1 (19:97), which is second-best (or worst, depending on how you look at it) in my league, but I think this is at least partly a result of people underperforming, HR-wise. I also have a lot of guys who are hitting in the middle of their lineups, which helps. I agree that it's probably unsustainable, but I'm hoping that it normalizes as a result of HR increase in my case...

I suppose I should have stipulated that I'm in a 12 team league with 25 man rosters. Leagues with significantly different numbers of MLB players being used might expect to see different ratios.

So let's summarize the other ratios listed so far:

Me: 1:2.9 (34:98)
GiantFan666: 1:3.6 (20:72)
GiantFanrival: 1:4.9 (20:97)
Egregious: 1:5.1 (19:97)
Ink: 1:4.2 (26:110)
Shock: 1:3.7 (28:104)
xeifrank: 1:3.9 (33:129)

Just eyeballing things, I think it's reasonable to expect about a 1:4 ratio of HR to RBI over the course of a season. I really don't know, but it's something I'm going to keep an eye on.

Ink, I think you are in good shape. You must be picking up big time RBI somewhere if 18 of those 26 have been solo shots! (I have no idea how many of my shots have been solo). Your HR:RBI ratio looks good now, and if you continue to hit HR you might be able to bring it up a little more.

GiantFan, your rival should cool off and you should heat up. Over the course of a season, 25 RBI aren't too hard to make up. Of course, if you both continue to hit HR at the same rate it'll be a little tougher. Just be thankful you're not in Egregious' league! :-D

This all makes me feel that much better, and confirms that my HR:RBI ratio is low. I would expect to have RBI numbers like xeifrank's, which would put me in 1st in RBI in my league (as opposed to 6th - though only 20 back). I don't know how strongly correlated RBI and HR standings are, but if they are even weakly correlated then I think I'll rise in the standings.

Anyone else have numbers to post?

29 homeruns and 100 RBI's for a 3.44 average. You should also consider looking at where your guys are hitting. Cory Patterson hits at the top of the lineup for the Cubs so probably wont get many RBI's. 4 HRs and 8rbi's and i would not expect that to improve much. You need guys in that 3456 spot to get alot of RBI's. That is why is why it is really hard to have alot of steals/runs and rbis, because those speed guys hit in the 1,2 spot. Now you see the real reason guys like Beltran, ARod, Soriano have their value...because they get those speed stats but are in position to let there power hit those RBI's in.
