HR + (SB/1.65) + [(H-.280*AB)*.6]+ R/3 + RBI/3
Great job, that's pretty good. One thing though, I see speedsters consistently ranked higher in Yahoo than by this formula. Looking at guys like Gardner, BJUp, Andrus, Reyes, Nyjer, Figgins, etc. Then again, that might also be because Yahoo puts more value to AVG (and the number of ABs used to derive that value) than the formula you're using, because Cruz and Boesch have fewer AB while speedy leadoff hitters have more.
What would HR + (SB/1.67) + [(H-.2725*AB)*.6]+ R/3 + RBI/3 look like?
