LOB vs. Runs


Just a quick report.  Someone asked whether runs correlated well with LOB.  I could see it going either way.  It could be that more runners leads to more LOB and more runs both.  Or, maybe worse teams strand a lot of their baserunners because no one hits them in.  It turns out in 2011 in the AL runs only explained 36% of LOB. 

Someone pointed out neglecting CS and DP’s LOB is essentially PA*OBP – RUNS.  Since runs and OBP correlate well, however, it is hard to make much of that.

Anyway, here is the 2011 AL.
