Revisiting the Myth of the RBI Guy, Part One

This is the first in a two-part series I'm doing using different stats to see just how overrated some "run producers" are by their RBI numbers. It takes its inspiration from Jonah Keri's piece in Baseball Between the Numbers, but uses different (and better) stats -- wOBA/linear weights rather than MLV/VORP. I have some links to some nice "leaderboards" that I put on Google Docs. Next week, I'll revisit the topic using some of FanGraphs more contexual stats.

I did a spreadsheet of this stuff at the request of someone at Royals Review, but I thought people here might be interested. You can get more of my explanation by following the above link to my FanShot there.
