yes, and it has been done a billion times before in threads exactly like this one. use the search.
the conclusion? it turns out people's otb ratings vary +- 600 points from rhp ratings to either direction. for some they happen to match, for some others there's next to zero correlation. and usually at that point some of the more clueless individuals from the former group start accusing the latter of cheating. then the thread gets closed.
