Comments on: Fewest games in a season to reach 100 RBI This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: Andy Sun, 29 Jul 2007 13:52:49 +0000 Trent,

Clearly you are correct. The stat I reported is a stat I heard given when Arod reached that mark, but it's pretty obviously wrong. Thanks for the correction.

By: trent_mccotter Sun, 29 Jul 2007 13:49:02 +0000 It would be interesting to find the guys who requird the fewest games (or team games), or PAs, to get to 100 RBI in a season. I went through Ruth's sheets and found four seasons where he got to 100 RBI in less than 100 TEAM games:

1921: 100th RBI on 7/30, 92nd team game
1926: 100th RBI on 7/27, 98th team game
1931: 100th RBI on 7/27(1), 94th team game
1932: 100th RBI on 7/29, 99th team game

By: trent_mccotter Sun, 29 Jul 2007 13:22:57 +0000 Is ARod really just the third Yankee to get to 100 RBI in less than 100 games? I thought I read that he was the first Yankee to do so since both Gehrig and DiMaggio did it in 1937, but it seems like Ruth would've done it in at least one season....

By: charlie123517 Sat, 28 Jul 2007 17:28:56 +0000 That's an interesting stat. My friend and I thought of a stat, so anyone who reads this comment back and say what you think:

It's called the "Production Factor", and here's some key points in it:
-Players get as many points as the percentage of hits, runs and RBI they get for their team.
-If a player has a homer that drove in 3 of the 4 runs for his team, give him only 75 points, don't give him credit for scoring himself and driving in himself, because that would suggest he drove in 4 runs.

Here's an example:
2 Days ago, Scott Posednik was 2-4 with 1 run scored and an RBI. The White Sox scored 4 runs on 4 hits.
This means Posednik get 50 points for hits (2 out of 4 is 50%), and 25 for his run (1 out of 4= 25%) and 25 points for his RBI. So Posednik ends up with 100 points, and very good score.
