Comments on: Estimate the Runs Scored http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/11393 This and that about baseball stats.

Still, I'm shocked that the estimates are so close. Especially since I was using weights for 2010, and your set of games came over a 90-year period (e.g., depending on the scoring levels, sometimes a walk is closer in value to a HR, etc).

Wow, very interesting. I fed the numbers into a spreadsheet and the estimated number of wOBA runs created is....7.594. wOBA is based on linear weights, which are based on the average run values of every type of batting event. Proof that linear weights work! How many games came up on your search?

There have been 70 teams since 1919 to put up exactly those 4 numbers. Of course, if you add in that there were 13 singles, there were only 3 other games since 1919. But the other 3 teams still scored an average of 5 runs.

You could emulate the styled tables if this were allowed
