Numbers starting to level out after a crazy low beginning to the year in terms of scoring at home.
160 total runs in 21 home games = 7.62 runs/game
150 total runs in 19 road games = 7.89 runs/game
97 park factor for runs
Still below the longer-term park factor before the change. Will be interesting to see what, if any, difference is made over a longer stretch.
Trending more towards a run-suppressing environment over the last couple months. About 9/10ths of a run less per game at home since the last time I checked in mid-May.
425 total runs in 53 home games = 8.02 runs/game
490 total runs in 56 road games = 8.75 runs/game
92 park factor for runs based on the above numbers. BB-ref calculates the one-year park effect as only 96 though, so still a pitcher's park but not to the higher degree I got to. Not sure what the difference in the calculation is, maybe BB-ref uses last calendar year or 162 games and not just this season? Or maybe they scale the numbers based on the teams playing, so generally high-scoring teams wouldn't inflate the number as much and generally low-scoring teams wouldn't deflate it?
