Default Joe Buck or the Red Sox - Who's weirder?

For the 79th time we've heard Joe Buck and to some extent Smoltz rail about the unusual amount of 2 out runs scored by the Red Sox.

I want to know what a normal distribution is for 0 out runs, 1 out runs and 2 out runs. My gut tells me that 0 out runs would be the least and 2 out runs would be the most, but what are the numbers and how much do they differ from the Red Sox regular season numbers. Forget the World Series for it is too small a sample to be meaningful.

Hopefully someone out there in Net54 land knows the answer or can find it quicker than I can.

If you do not know the answer, feel free to answer the question in the title anyway?

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Default 1- out appears to he the winner

Stolen straight from internet:

More runs are scored with 1 out than with 0 or 2 outs, though almost as many are scored with 2 outs. For example, in 2013, 3329 runs have scored with 0 outs, 5518 runs have scored with 1 out, and 5416 runs have scored with 2 outs. [1]

Here is the percentage breakdown for a few particular years [2], and you can see that the pattern is very consistent:
2013 - 23.3% with 0 outs, 38.7% with 1 out, 38.0% with 2 outs
2012 - 24.0%, 38.4%, 37.6%
2011 - 22.9%, 39.7%, 37.3%
2010 - 23.2%, 38.5%, 38.3%
2000 - 23.8%, 38.8%, 37.3%
1990 - 22.1%, 40.1%, 37.8%
1980 - 22.1%, 40.2%, 37.7%
1970 - 22.8%, 39.8%, 37.5%

1970 - 22.8%, 39.8%, 37.5%


I guess it's fairly easy to see that producing runs with one out is more probable than doing the same with two outs, just because you can score while making the second out, but not the third.


Every other major variable involves 1.) the planning and execution of pitches, swings (or takes) and the defense and 2.) proper use of available players.



Much less (IMO) involved are weather (most of the time), playing surface maintenance, Stadium design, adequate umpiring, and, of course, dumb luck.

The Red Sox are weird when there's two outs.
Joe Buck is weird all the time.

Joe Buck will always bother me. I can't help but think he has his lofty position because of his father's good name and career.

There were so many times in the WS where Buck and Smoltz were off on overheated tangent ("this pitcher is locked in. He can do whatever he wants to do right now, he wants to humiliate the other batting order . . .bla bla bla" and then within 10 seconds someone would lace a double in the corner and they switch on a dime and go off on some diametrically opposed harangue ("no one is going to stop so and so . . . . he can put the ball anywhere he wants. . . . ."). Like the prior discussion that went on for 4 minutes never happened. Which is it? Is the pitcher unhittable or not? I realize these guys have a lot of space to fill but the non stop jabbering really wears me down. 95% of the time they just wait for something to happen and then explain why it was inevitable what just happened. Okay. Whatever.

As far as Buck goes, the fact that he never played the game (like many announcers) means all he really does is repeat the same obvious stuff we have all heard our whole lives watching baseball. No insight just repetition.

Smoltz is fair. Don't hate him and at least he has some insights the average fan might not catch.

Not always. He brought up the Hrbek-Gant incident and was clearly biased.
