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!
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?
