Scoring runners

We've all read a lot about how the Yankees are overly dependent on HR's, don't move runners, etc. I thought I would take a look at this. Through 98 games they had 1057 non-HR base runners (H+BB+HBP-HR). They scored 282 of them (R-HR), for a ratio of .267.

This is the lowest ratio in MLB. Second from the bottom are the Pirates, at .269. But it's worse than that. The only other AL team below.300 is the Rangers, at .281.

So all that stuff is right.

Here's the list.
